8th crystal globe in the downhill for Lindsey!

Lindsey, who won five downhill races this season, already had the Audi FIS World Cup ladies’ downhill globe wrapped up last month, before her crash in the Super-G in Andorra. Yesterday she was in St. Moritz to pick up her historic 8th downhill crystal globe!

And with the win of the downhill title this season, she has now a total of 20 crystal globes – and thus broke the record mark of 19 crystal globes, held by Ingemar Stenmark.

“I’m so proud of what I have done and happy that I was able to come back here and accept my Globe.” Lindsey said. “I felt like I had a really great year – nine wins – and to be able to still take home one Globe at least, even though I had to end my season early, it means a lot. I worked so hard and was so close – I was leading four titles when I got hurt – so to still have at least one (Globe), that was huge and I’m pretty excited about it.”

Lindsey was still in the lead of the super-G standings until today’s last SG race of the season. However, Lara Gut/Switzerland and Tina Weirather/Liechtenstein surpassed Lindsey with their results today – thus, Lindsey finished third in the super-G standings.
