Austria’s Elisabeth Goergl won her second gold medal in the Alpine Ski World Championships.
Goergl’s winning run in the Downhill
Goergl defeated favorites Lindsey Vonn and Maria Riesch to become the first woman besides Riesch and Vonn to win a top-level downhill in two years. Vonn, despite suffering from a concussion after a February 2 crash, won the silver and Riesch placed third to win the bronze.
Julia Mancuso, who won silver in the Super-G, placed sixth in the downhill and Laurenne Ross was 10th, giving the U.S. three top-10 finishers in the world championships.
