Lindsey Vonn may have crashed in the giant slalom Thursday, but she got some good news after the race.
The International Skiing Federation confirmed Vonn as the super-combined World Cup champion. She already had secured the downhill and super-G titles. Vonn sealed the super-combined title when the third race of the season in the event was canceled because of bad weather last week in Crans-Montana, Switzerland.
That left Vonn with 160 points from two races, and Anja Paerson of Sweden second with 150. FIS confirmed that two races were enough for Vonn to win the title.
Vonn earned gold in the downhill and bronze in the super-G at the Vancouver Olympics.
