Lindsey Vonn’s comeback season shows no signs of slowing: The pro skier captured her 64th world cup victory in the super-G at St. Moritz on Sunday, breaking her own recently-set record for career victories, the AP reports. Only one other competitor came within a second of her time.

After knee injuries and surgeries kept her out of the Sochi Olympics and threatened her career—one that makes her the greatest woman in ski racing’s history—the 30-year-old American seems to be back in top form.

Vonn now leads the world cup super-G standings. She also overtook 19-year-old American Mikaela Shiffrin in the overall standings, moving up to third place.

Vonn will hit the slopes again at next week’s World Championships, held this year in her hometown of Vail, Colorado.
