Lindsey Vonn wins women's WCup downhill race

American skier Lindsey Vonn won her first downhill race of the season at Val d'Isere on Saturday to close the gap on overall World Cup leader Maria Riesch.
Vonn, the three-time defending World Cup champion and reigning Olympic downhill champion, had finished second behind her German rival in both downhills at Lake Louise two weeks ago.
Despite a small wobble near the top section of the 2.8-kilometer (1.7-mile) Oreiller-Killy course, Vonn finished in a provisional time of 1 minute, 51.42 seconds.
Swiss pair Nadja Kamer and Lara Gut were second and third respectively.
Riesch started poorly in soft conditions and kept losing more time to Vonn, finishing 2.28 seconds adrift.
