Vonn Takes 4th-Straight Title in CO

In six starts, skier has five wins

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.
