Vonn shows progress in 3rd race of comeback

Vonn finishes an unofficial fifth through 45 racers in a World Cup super-G.

LAKE LOUISE, Alberta — Lindsey Vonn showed more progress Sunday in her comeback from major knee surgery and announced she’s “ready for Sochi” after finishing an unofficial fifth through 45 racers in a World Cup super-G.

It was the third race this weekend for Vonn, a four-time overall World Cup champion and reigning Olympic downhill gold medalist, who hadn’t competed since a high-speed crash at the world championships last February. She was 40th in Friday’s downhill and 11th in Saturday’s downhill.

Vonn had won seven consecutive races at Lake Louise through last year. This weekend was more about testing how her right knee would hold up, especially after she partially re-tore her ACL in a fall Nov. 19.

After skiing Sunday, Vonn said: “I know I can win again.”
