Lindsey Vonn doesn't want health or history to dictate when her storied career ends.
With yet another knee injury behind her and a major record within reach, the three-time Olympic medalist is determined to retire on her terms.
ST. ANTON, Austria (AP) — Lindsey Vonn's return to World Cup racing will have to wait another week.
Heavy snowfall has forced organizers to call off downhill and super-G races scheduled for the Austrian resort of St. Anton this weekend.
Vonn was planning to return this week after sitting out the start of the season with an injured knee.
Vonn needs five more victories to break the overall World Cup record of 86 wins, set by Swedish great Ingemar Stenmark in the 1980s.
ST. ANTON, Austria (AP) — Lindsey Vonn's return to the World Cup slopes has been delayed by a day after organizers called off Thursday's first downhill training because of weather conditions.
The international ski federation says it canceled the session "due to heavy snowfall."
Another downhill training on the 2.1-kilometer Karl Schranz course is scheduled for Friday, followed by the race on Saturday and a super-G on Sunday.
Lindsey Vonn is planning to return from injury this weekend for speed races in Austria, resuming her quest for the all-time record for World Cup wins.
It will be her first ski races of the season after hurting her knee and sitting out six events.
ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) — Marcel Hirscher returned to winning ways Sunday, triumphing in the first men's World Cup slalom of 2019 after he had missed the podium in the last two races.
The seven-time overall champion trailed Austrian teammate Marco Schwarz after the opening leg but posted the fastest time in the final run before Schwarz straddled a gate and failed to finish.
SEMMERING, Austria (AP) — Mikaela Shiffrin capped the best year of her career by setting yet another milestone Saturday, overtaking one of her childhood idols to become the most successful female slalom skier in the 52-year history of the World Cup.
In the last race of 2018, the American added her 36th victory. Shiffrin previously shared the record with Austria's Marlies Raich, who, competing as Marlies Schild, won 35 times before retiring in 2014.
COURCHEVEL, France (AP) — Mikaela Shiffrin wrote more World Cup history Saturday, winning a slalom for a women's record-equaling 35th career victory in the discipline and 50th win overall.
Shiffrin extended her first-run lead of 0.04 seconds to finish 0.29 clear of Petra Vlhova, who has been runner-up to the American star in all three traditional slaloms this season.
SAALBACH-HINTERGLEMM, Austria (AP) — Marcel Hirscher returned to a hill where he raced as a kid to become the most successful Austrian skier of all time.
The seven-time overall champion won a World Cup slalom in his native province of Salzburg on Thursday for his 63rd career victory, overtaking Annemarie Moser-Proell, who had 62 wins when she retired in 1980.
LA VILLA, Italy (AP) — Marcel Hirscher extended his dominance in Alta Badia by winning a parallel giant slalom night race on Monday and tied fellow Austrian Annemarie Moser-Proell for third on the World Cup's all-time wins list.
Hirscher beat unheralded Thibaut Favrot of France in the final by 0.14 seconds.
It was Hirscher's second win in two days after taking the traditional GS race on Sunday.
He has a record eight career victories on the Gran Risa course.
Lindsey Vonn says she injured her knee in a training crash and will miss the upcoming World Cup speed races in Lake Louise, Alberta.
The three-time Olympic medalist didn't specify which knee she hurt in a super-G wipeout on Monday, but she said on her social media accounts she won't need surgery. She added: "Don't worry though, I am down but I am NOT out!!"
COPPER MOUNTAIN, Colo. (AP) — On her farewell tour, Lindsey Vonn vows to dine out even more with her American teammates , have an occasional glass of wine with longtime rivals/friends and take plenty of photos.
One quick caveat, though, as she savors the sights and sounds during her last go-around: Come race day, Vonn will of course be Vonn.
SOELDEN, Austria (AP) — The spotlight will again be on American duo Lindsey Vonn and Mikaela Shiffrin in the 53rd women's Alpine skiing World Cup season — but for very different reasons.
While Shiffrin starts her quest for a third overall championship at the season-opening giant slalom on Saturday, Vonn is set to kick off her record-chasing campaign with two downhills and a super-G in Lake Louise in late November.
There was never a pop, any searing pain or signs of swelling in U.S. downhill ski racer Breezy Johnson's right knee. She even took a few more runs after her recent crash while training in Chile.
That's what made the diagnosis so difficult to process: Torn ACL. Season over.
GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany (AP) — Lindsey Vonn edged Sofia Goggia in a foretaste of the Pyeongchang Olympic downhill on Saturday, raising her career total to 80 World Cup victories.
The American standout beat Goggia by two hundredths of a second as their ongoing rivalry in Alpine skiing's fastest discipline continued.
"It's a big number," Vonn said of her 80 wins, just six short of the all-time record set by Swedish great Ingemar Stenmark in the 1980s.
KRANJSKA GORA, Slovenia (AP) — Two months before turning 23, Mikaela Shiffrin has already won half as many World Cup races as the winningest female ski racer of all time, American teammate Lindsey Vonn.
While the 33-year-old Vonn added her 78th career win at a super-G in France last month, Shiffrin earned her 39th victory at a giant slalom on Saturday.
ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) — Marcel Hirscher won a slalom on Thursday to match Italian great Alberto Tomba's tally of 50 men's World Cup wins.
The six-time overall champion from Austria became only the fourth male skier to reach that mark, also joining Hermann Maier (54) and Ingemar Stenmark (86).
On the women's circuit, only Lindsey Vonn (78), Annemarie Moser-Proell (62) and Vreni Schneider (55) have passed the 50-win milestone.
ZURICH (AP) — Lindsey Vonn's quest to race against the men in a World Cup event remains on hold for the moment.
U.S. Ski and Snowboard presented its proposal to the International Ski Federation's Alpine executive board Tuesday, with the topic being tabled until the spring. Vonn, the all-time winningest female World Cup racer, is hoping to race a downhill versus the men during the 2018-19 season. The U.S. petitioned FIS on her behalf.
DENVER (AP) — Always the consummate planner, Lindsey Vonn has every detail scribbled in a calendar from now until her season starts in November. Workouts, upcoming trips, ski camps, appointments — all of the ordinary stuff.
The bigger-ticket items? Now those are simply memorized. In the twilight of her career, the four-time overall World Cup champion has a priority list of aspirations before even thinking of stepping away:
ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — Andre Myhrer of Sweden won a slalom race at the World Cup Finals on Sunday when first-run leader Marcel Hirscher of Austria uncharacteristically lost speed near the finish.
Myhrer navigated the course in a combined time of 1 minute, 27.97 seconds, holding off Felix Neureuther of Germany by 0.14 seconds. Austria's Michael Matt was third and Hirscher fourth.
ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) — If Mikaela Shiffrin wins her 27th World Cup race in Tuesday's slalom, she will match the career achievement of one of the biggest names in American ski racing history — Phil Mahre.
She would also match the women's record of eight consecutive World Cup slaloms wins - and draw level with Swedish skiing great Ingemar Stenmark for the number of victories before turning 22 years old.
Not bad for someone who isn't interested in records.
