Lindsey Vonn extended her World Cup win streak to four, the longest ever in U.S. history, as she took victory in super G by three-tenths of a second on Wednesday in Beaver Creek, Colorado. It is also Vonn's first World Cup win on U.S. soil and comes only miles from her home in Vail. "Getting a chance to win at home, with a home crowd here, it's just more than I could've expected," Vonn said. She was first in two downhill races and a super G last week in Alberta, Canada and also notched victory in the season's opening race, a giant slalom, in Austria. The win is Vonn's 46th on the World Cup, tying her for third most in women's skiing history.
