You go girl!!! US woman wins World Cup

Posted on: February 22, 2008 7:05 pm
Today, Lindsey Vonn (local resident here in Vail) won the overall FIS World Cup Downhill Title. This is only the second time a US woman has won, the other being Picabo Street in 1996.

Some may remember her in the last Olympics when she seemed airborne for more than 100 years ending in a horrific crash. Most thought she may never ski again, only to be back on the slopes a few days later, not to compete but just to participate.

Congrats to her and the US Womem's ski team.

This is a very big deal here and for all US Skiing.

Hey CSF,  Great post.  Great to see a Colorado native being succesful, especially after last years close call.
