Maze wins super-G gold at ski worlds, Vonn crashes

SCHLADMING, Austria (AP) - Tina Maze of Slovenia provisionally won the super-G at the world championships on Tuesday, and Lindsey Vonn was hospitalized after a crash.

Vonn lost balance on her right leg while landing after a jump and appeared to have injured her right knee. She was taken to the hospital by helicopter, where doctors say she tore her cruciate and lateral ligments.

Maze won the race in 1 minute, 35.39 seconds, beating Lara Gut of Switzerland by 0.38. Julia Mancuso of the United States was 0.52 behind in third.

Some lower-ranked racers were still to start.

The race had been delayed by 3½ hours because of fog hanging over the course.

The men's super-G is scheduled for Wednesday.
