Anja Paerson wins World Cup super-combined event

Anja Paerson of Sweden has won a World Cup super-combined event for her first victory of the season, while Lindsey Vonn of the United States was third to extend her lead in the overall standings.
Paerson timed 2 minutes, 00.54 seconds for the combined super-G and slalom runs on the Corviglia piste.
The 28-year-old Swede celebrated her 41st career World Cup win with her trademark belly slide in the finish area.
Michaela Kirchgasser of Austria was second, 0.43 behind, and Vonn trailed by 0.92 after being second fastest in the super-G.
Vonn was set to collect 60 World Cup points to build a 116-point lead over Germany's Maria Riesch.
The result was unofficial because lower-ranked skiers had still to race.
