Lindsey sweeps Lake Louise!

For the third time in her career Lindsey completed a weekend sweep of races in Lake Louise/Canada and took her 70th World Cup victory with a dominant Super-G performance => she finished in 1 minute, 19.79 seconds, that’s 1.32 seconds over Austrian Tamara Tippler. Lindsey also broke the record for most World Cup Super-G victories with this historic 25th win, passing retired Hermann Maier from Austria.

“It was a big deal. I feel like there were some people that doubted whether I could win today, and especially because Lara (Gut) had won the last couple races here in super G. And also my technician made some bets with people, so I felt a little bit like I had to come through. It was my physio Lindsay’s last day with me traveling on the road, so I kind of wanted to end with a bang. I had a pretty good run. I’m pretty happy with it.” Lindsey said after the race.

On Friday and Saturday Lindsey also grabbed victories in both downhill races: She won Friday’s downhill by half a second and at Saturday’s downhill race she was more than a second ahead of anyone else for victory number two.

Lindsey has now won 18 times in 41 career starts at Lake Louise, enough the resort is sometimes referred to as “Lake Lindsey” and extending her record for one skier at one venue.

The women’s World Cup continues with a GS and SL in Are/Sweden on December 12-13.
