Elisabeth Goergl won the Super-G,  first race of the 2011 World Championships, in Garmisch, Germany with Julia Mancuso (USA) in second place, and Maria Riesch (Germany) in third.

Most expected that  Riesch or three-time  World Cup champion Vonn would win, but Lindsey Vonn suffered a concussion  on Feb. 2 when she crashed training GS in Hintereit, Austria. She posted a video of her crash in which you can see that she hit her head so hard that it bounced.  After this crash, she skipped the Slalom and GS in Zwiesel on February fourth and fifth.

Vonn raced the Super-G, despite not recovering fully from her concussion, to place seventh.
