Olympic Alpine history beckons several contenders for the women's downhill on Wednesday, none more than Maria Hoefl-Riesch.
Elisabeth Goergl beat Anna Fenninger for an Austrian 1-2 finish at a women's World Cup downhill Saturday, ending a two-year drought for the ski-mad nation in the sport's fastest discipline.
Lindsey Vonn clinched her fifth consecutive World Cup downhill title Saturday after placing third in a race on the 2014 Sochi Olympics course won by German rival and friend Maria Hoefl-Riesch.
But she got right back up, skied down and said she was not injured.
"I know I had a super run. That gives me satisfaction," said Goergl, who also was the last Austrian woman to win a downhill - in Bad Kleinkirchheim, Austria, in January 2012.
