TARVISIO, Italy (AP) - Lindsey Vonn clinched her third discipline title in three days with a super-G victory Sunday to wrap up a memorable weekend of racing.
Vonn took the super-combined and downhill titles the past two days and has moved within 96 points of German rival and good friend Maria Riesch in the overall standings with six races remaining this season.
Vonn holds an insurmountable 171-point lead over Riesch in the super-G standings with only one race remaining in the discipline this season.
Vonn clocked 1 minute, 21.75 seconds down the sun-drenched Prampero course. Fellow American Julia Mancuso was second, 0.23 behind, and Riesch was third, 0.50 back.
In a banner day for the Americans, World Cup rookie Laurenne Ross was fourth, 0.70 behind, for her career-best result.
