Lindsey keeps improving-5th in the Super-G in Lake Louise!
It is Lindsey's first top ten place after her reconstructive surgery on her right knee in February this year and her re-injury in Vail almost three weeks ago. Lindsey crossed in a time of 1 minute 23:71 seconds. Winner of the Super-G in Lake Louise was Swiss Lara Gut with a time of 1:22:86 ahead of Tina Weirather from Lichtenstein. The Austrian Anna Fenninger finished third, 0.33 seconds behind Gut.
Lindsey knows the slope really well; she won 14 competitions in Lake Louise and not for nothing the course's nickname is "Lake Lindsey". Lindsey was performing really well and showed more progress in today's race! Despite some slight mistakes she came down the hill with a far more attacking as well as confident style than on Friday and Saturday. And that resulted in a fantastic 5th place! This weekend was an excellent comeback to competitive skiing for Lindsey! Right after the race she said "a huge step in the right direction - a perfect way to end the weekend. I have a lot of self-confidence now. Every day I got more and more aggressive, more confident and I feel great. I know I can win again."
The ladies' FIS Word Cup continues in St. Moritz/Switzerland, with a Super-G on Saturday (Dec. 14) and a Giant Slalom on Sunday (Dec. 15).
