Tiger Woods' ski racer flame Lindsey Vonn wins record 6th straight World Cups
New York, Mar 14 (ANI): Fog canceled racing on Wednesday, giving the injured Lindsey Vonn a record sixth straight World Cup downhill title without having to show up on the mountain.
The American ski racer who is dating golf ace Tiger Woods finished one point ahead of overall champion Tina Maze, the New York Daily News reported.
The title comes five weeks after a crash and season-ended knee injury for the American.
The cancellation allowed Vonn to retain her title - just one point ahead of overall champion Maze of Slovenia.
"Omg I won the World Cup Downhill title!!!!! 6 in a row with a bum knee!" Vonn wrote on her Facebook page.
Two years ago, Vonn was denied a chance at a fourth straight overall title by similar weather conditions in Lenzerheide.
The season-ending giant slalom was canceled and Vonn lost by three points to her good friend Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany. (ANI)
