Vonn Overcomes Injury, Makes History

Lindsey Vonn is the first American to win three races on three straight days, reports the New York Times. Vonn conquered the task when she won the Super G event in Haus im Ennstal, Austria, on Sunday. Even with the remnants of an injured arm, she completed the course in 1 minute 26.69 seconds and beat out Sweden's Anja Paerson. The last time a female skier pulled a three-in-three was in 1997, when Germany's Katja Seizinger did it.
