Even after career-threatening injuries and career-altering celebrity, Lindsey Vonn continues to dominate. On Sunday, Vonn notched her 62nd World Cup victory, matching the 35-year-old record set by Annemarie Moser-Proell.
Skiing at the foggy, soft Olympia delle Tofane course in Cortina D'Ampezzo, Italy in the downhill event, Vonn finished in 1 minute, 39.61 seconds to defeat Austria's Elisabeth Goergl by about one-third of a second. Check Vonn's run right here, starting at about the 9:40 mark:
Injuries hampered Vonn for most of the last two years, keeping her out of the Sochi Olympics in 2014. But her workout routine never flagged, and neither did her spirit, according to Vonn:
"The last two years have been pretty tough and a lot of people counted me out and thought I would never reach this record," she said. "A lot of people thought that I would never win again. I never stopped believing in myself and I think I proved everyone wrong."
