Goggia leads Italian sweep at World Cup downhill; Vonn 27th

  Goggia leads Italian sweep at World Cup downhill; Vonn 27th Sofia Goggia used what she called her best ever downhill run to lead an Italian sweep of the podium at a women's World Cup race on Sunday. Racing from a lowered start due to fog in the upper part of the hill, Goggia sped down the bumpy Karnten-Franz Klammer course in gutsy style, beating the field by more than a second. "I have never skied so strong and consistent in my whole life in a downhill," said the Italian after landing her third career victory. Last year, Goggia won both test events on the hill for the Pyeongchang Olympics."The snow I found here was exactly the same as in South Korea," said Goggia, who timed 1 minute, 4.00 seconds to beat Federica Brignone by 1.

It was Vonn 's first win since a downhill at Garmisch-Partenkirchen in January, and a welcome relief. Last Saturday, she jarred her back in a super - G at St. Moritz in Switzerland and finished in 24th place. In clear pain, she pulled out of the next day's scheduled super - G .

The 32-year-old Fanchini had to end her season because of a tumor, forcing her out of her fourth Olympics in Pyeongchang next month.

"She is always with us, she is missing. For sure, we are all upset. This (win) was for her," said Brignone, adding she hoped her triumph "can help Elena to recover better."

In a Sports Illustrated piece by Tim Layden, the writer asks Vonn what it was like to date a man as "famous — and infamous" as Woods. "I mean. . . I was in love," Vonn said. "I loved him and we're still friends. Sometimes, I wish he would have listened to me a little more, but he's very stubborn and he likes to go his own way.

VAL D'ISERE, France (AP) — With her father proudly watching from the bottom of the slope, Lindsey Vonn sped to an emotional win in a World Cup super - G race on Saturday.

In the penultimate super-G before the Olympics, Brignone timed 1 minute, 9.80 seconds on the Karnten-Franz Klammer course and denied then-leader Lara Gut her first win of the season, beating the Swiss former overall champion by 0.18. Cornelia Huetter of Austria was 0.46 behind in third.

Nadia Fanchini, Elena's younger sister, trailed Brignone by 0.98 in fifth for her best result of the season.

Lindsey Vonn finished 1.43 off the lead in ninth place, a day after the American standout was considering skipping the race to avoid the risk of getting injured on the partly weakened course. However, snow conditions vastly improved after a cold night.

"As soon as I saw the course at inspection this morning, I knew I was going to run," said Vonn, adding she was satisfied with the conditions after "the snow was sugar" in previous days.

"For me that is a dangerous situation because I don't have any stability then on my knee," Vonn said. "If it's bumpy it's not a problem. As long as the surface is holding and solid, it's fine."

Vonn badly injured her right knee skiing in soft snow at the 2013 world championships in Austria, and ultimately missed the Sochi Olympics the following year.

Wearing bib No. 2, Vonn briefly led Saturday's race but knew she was not in contention for her 79th career victory.

"On the bottom I wasn't as aggressive I should have been. I was a little bit too conservative," she said. "It's kind of funny because I skied the harder sections better and then the easier sections worse."

Vonn didn't match Brignone's skiing, who found the right line to master some tricky turns in the course.

"It's really bumpy, and then it's going really straight in some parts," Brignone said.

It was the Italian's seventh career win, and second of the season after triumphing in a giant slalom in Lienz, Austria, last month.

Brignone became the fifth different winner of five super-G races this season.

Still aiming for her first win after coming back from knee surgery, Gut used a strong run to take an early lead in the race.

Brignone trailed by 0.08 at the last split time but made up two-tenths on the Swiss to grab the win.

"To me it's important to show in races what I can do," Gut said. "I was determined to start January well and I have done that."

Hungarian skier Edit Miklos crashed when her skis crossed shortly before finishing, and was brought to hospital with "a possibly severe knee injury," according to her coach Stefan Abplanalp.

A year ago, Miklos was airlifted off the hill with a right-knee injury after crashing in a downhill training run at another Austrian resort, Zauchensee.

The race was rescheduled from Sunday after organizers swapped it with the downhill. The mandatory downhill training run will be held Sunday morning, two hours before the race.
