Lindsey kicks off the World Championships with bronze in Super-G!

On Tuesday (Feb. 3) Lindsey claimed the bronze medal in Super-G at the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in Vail/Beaver Creek.
Anna Fenninger from Austria won gold, crossing the finish line in a time of 1:10.29, 0.03 seconds ahead of Slovenia’s Tina Maze. Lindsey skied to bronze in 1:10.44.

After due to high wind and blowing snow the race was postponed 30 minutes and the start was lowered, Lindsey got in the race with bib 18. She fell behind early in her run as a wind gust standing her up. But she attacked on the bottom of the course, put all her strength to pick up speed in the flatter and raced to take the lead! However, Tina Maze was then the next skier and she beat her by a tenth of a second, Anna Fenninger followed three racers after that and grabbed the gold medal.
“I’m disappointed, but at the same time, I’m happy. A World Championships medal is always a good thing.” Lindsey said right after the race.
On Friday (Feb. 6) the Downhill race is on the schedule of the World Championships in Vail/Beaver Creek – an other chance for Lindsey to win a medal!
