Bulgarian BOUNCE BACK
After the wind blew away the
downhill, Lindsey Vonn pulled
off a killer save in Bansko for her
fourth super G win of the season
BY ERIC WILLIAMS
The wild animal-inspired race suit Lindsey Vonn picked out for World Cup speed races in
Bansko, Bulgaria was spot-on.
Dressed in a colorful mix of tiger stripes and cheetah spots, Vonn at first looked more like prey than
the predator on the Marc Girardelli course after a mid-run bobble that threw her 0.61 seconds behind
at the following split timer. But just when everyone thought Vonn had been pounced, she ferociously
attacked the bottom half of the course, risking far more than she planned on and stalking away with
a slim 0.05-second winning margin, having bagged her fourth super G of the season.
Lindsey Vonn took the
Bansko super G by just five
hundredths of a second.
