Lara Gut won her first World Cup downhill on Friday as Lindsey Vonn crashed out, ending her winning streak in Val d'Isere. Vonn was reportedly uninjured but responded to reporters that she was "not feeling great" after crashing in her strongest discipline. "She made a mistake that every skier [makes] at some point of their skiing career," U.S. women's coach Alex Hoedlmoser said. "A little bit of fall away in that turn. [With] her type of skiing where she's pushing things to the limit ... it was just a touch too much there." Gut managed to overcome a challenging course and finish the downhil in 1 minute, 19.75 seconds.
