What a superb record of success: Lindsey already cracks Top 5 in Super-G!

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! 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.”
This weekend was an excellent comeback to competitive skiing for Lindsey – and what a superb record of success: on Friday Lindsey was placed 40th (3.19 seconds behind the winner), she was improving on Saturday – she finished 11th (1.26 seconds behind the winner) where on Sunday she was already cracking the Top 5 and was ranked 5th (0.85 seconds behind the winner)!

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).
