ARE, Sweden — Sofia Goggia followed up her Olympic downhill gold medal by claiming the season-long World Cup title in the discipline on Wednesday.
Lindsey Vonn narrowly beat Goggia to win the race at World Cup finals but the American still ended up three points behind the Italian in the standings.
In a shortened race that was more like a sprint than a full downhill, Vonn clocked 55.65 seconds to finish 0.06 ahead of Goggia, her friend and rival.
It was Vonn’s 82nd World Cup win, moving within four of Ingemar Stenmark’s record of 86.
Alice Mckennis of the United States finished third, 0.28 behind Vonn.
