Lindsey Vonn clinches her 3rd straight super-combined title after Sochi race canceled
KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) ' Lindsey Vonn clinched her third straight super-combined title Sunday after the final race in the discipline this season was canceled due to heavy snowfall on the Sochi 2014 Olympics course.
A day earlier the American clinched her fifth consecutive World Cup downhill title.
The International Ski Federation had initially said the race might be rescheduled for Are, Sweden, next month, but then scrapped that idea.
With just two super-combi races completed this season, Vonn took the title with 180 points, 55 points ahead of Slovenia's Tina Maze and 60 points in front of Austria's Nicole Hosp.
Vonn and the other top-ranked women now travel to Moscow for a special parallel event Tuesday.
