Vonn 25th in Lienz SL, Slips to Second


 
 
LIENZ, Austria (Dec. 29) - Lindsey Vonn (Vail, CO), the lone U.S. racer to reach the second run, was 25th Saturday in a slalom and dropped to second place in the overall World Cup standings behind Austrian Nicole Hosp. Italian Chiara Costazza won the race with Hosp second to reclaim the points lead. WCSN.com will webcast same-day coverage at noon ET.

Costazza led both runs to win in 1:54.97 with Hosp second at 1:55.65. A day after Resi Stiegler (Jackson Hole, WY) was injured in a crash during Saturday's giant slalom, Vonn finished at 1:58.63. Julia Mancuso (Olympic Valley, CA) and Lauren Ross (Stowe, VT) did not qualify for a second run.

Hosp, the slalom standings leader, moved back atop the overall World Cup points with 514 after 14 races. Vonn has 480 points with Mancuso dropped to fourth overall at 444.

Coach Chris Knight said, "It was definitely different without Resi in there. Just three girls - that's not what we're used to, but that's what it was today and they gave it a good effort.

"Lindsey has struggled in her last two slaloms, so she wanted to make sure she finished that second run and got some points. And I thought Jules is skiing the best slalom I've seen, but she made a big mistake in the middle of the first run and got thrown off the course, then made it back in, was pushing across the flat...and still just missed the second run by seven-hundredths."

The women's tour resumes with another GS/slalom weekend Jan. 5-6 in Spindleruv Mlyn, Czech Republic.
