Vonn can look back on a unique career, where she won the 82 World Cup races. It is clearly the most number of women ever.
in Addition, she has won gold at both the OLYMPICS and the WORLD cup.
Before the season, she had stated that it would be her last on the top. Karrierestoppet was accelerated because of the damage.
Søndagsturen down the Swedish pist was shortened due to fog and wind in the area.
It meant that styrtløberne started further down the mountain than planned. Immediately, it was an advantage for Vonn, who has struggled with pain in both of his operated knee.
