Another day in Cortina, another record for Lindsey Vonn.
The American won a World Cup super-G Sunday for her 11th career victory in Cortina, Italy, breaking the resort mark of retired Austrian standout Renate Goetschl.
"It's incredible to think back to when I was racing with Renate — it seemed like she won every single race in Cortina and she seemed unbeatable," Vonn said. "And to have surpassed her now it's kind of hard to process all of these records. It's hard to imagine having more success than my idols."
By winning a downhill Saturday, Vonn eclipsed Annemarie Moser-Proell's mark of 36 career wins in skiing's marquee event.
And last year in Cortina, Vonn surpassed Moser-Proell's women's record of 62 wins across all events.
"This place is incredibly special for me," Vonn said. "I've broken quite a few records here now. I enjoy the time here. I'm always confident and happy when I'm in the starting gate and I think that shows in my skiing. ... I wish we could race every weekend here."
With another near-perfect run down the Olympia delle Tofane course, Vonn beat Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein by 0.69 seconds, with Viktoria Rebensburg of Germany third, 1.15 back.
Vonn made a slight bobble toward the end of her run but was otherwise smooth and error-free, leaning into turns further than other competitors to maintain speed and increasing her lead at each checkpoint.
Vonn took the lead in the overall standings from Lara Gut, who finished fifth, and now leads her Swiss rival by 45 points.
Vonn has 75 wins overall, and is approaching Ingemar Stenmark's all-time mark — among men and women — of 86.
"When I look back on my career after I'm retired, I'll really be able to appreciate what I've done," Vonn said. "I can't really think about it too much at this point because I'll get distracted. … Right now it's just my job, and when I retire then that will be my legacy."
