Lindsey is the Queen of Speed!
Yesterday (Mar.19) Lindsey picked up her second Crystal Globe at the FIS Alpine World Cup Season Finals in Méribel(FRA) after winning the last Super-G of the season. It's Lindsey's 19th-career Crystal Globe and her fifth-career super-G title. It is also the fifth time that Lindsey has won the double in the same year: the Super-G and Downhill title - a record in ladies' skiing!
Same scenario like at the Downhill race on Wednesday: For Lindsey the rival to beat was Anna Fenninger from Austria, just 8 points separated the two fastest Super-G skier of the season in the standings. Fenninger had an almost flawless run and she took the lead, thus Lindsey needed to take a win for claiming the title. She skied aggressively and put down a stunning run at the Roc de Fer. She set the pace right from the top, taking the lead by finishing the race in a time of 1 minute and 7.70 seconds. Lindsey was nearly half a second (+0.49) faster than Fenninger and that was enough to give Lindsey a 28-point victory over the Austrian in the Super-G standings. Tina Maze from Slovenia finished in third, 0.80 behind Lindsey.
"Anna put a lot of pressure on me. I knew she was leading when I was at the top and I just skied as hard as I could," said Lindsey "I was definitely on the limit, especially at the bottom. I just attacked like I had nothing to lose. I'm just thrilled with the win today and the second Crystal Globe this season."
Lindsey notched 19th World Cup titles and joined Swedish legend Ingemar Stenmark as the only skier to reach 19 season titles across all disciplines and the overall. What a smashing result considering her nearly two years on injury misery. Thumbs up to our "Crystal Lindsey"!
