Back at full strength after her head injury, Lindsey Vonn is poised to tie Swedish standout Anja Paerson on skiing's all-time wins list this weekend.
Vonn won the 40th World Cup race of her career in Are, Sweden, last weekend and will have three chances over the next three days to match Paerson with her 41st victory.
Only three more women lie beyond Paerson on the wins list: Austrian great Annemarie Moser-Proell leads with 62 victories, Vreni Schneider of Switzerland has 55 and recently retired Renate Goetschl has 46.
The 26-year-old Vonn says, "I'm just going to try winning races and we'll see where I stand at the end of my career, but I still have a lot that I would like to accomplish."
The weekend's races include a super-combined, a downhill and a super-G.
