Fischbacher wins race, Vonn wins discipline's crystal globe

Lindsey-VonnBansko, Bulgaria - World champion Lindsey Vonn on Saturday won the crystal globe in the downhill discipline after finishing 12 in the World Cup event in Bansko in Bulgaria.

Andrea Fischbacher won her first-ever World Cup downhill race, finally putting an end to a near 12-year wait for Austria to win a women's World Cup downhill race.

Fischbacher, who is related to Austrian ski legend Hermann Maier, beat Slovenian Tina Maze and Switzerland's Fabienne Suter into second and third place respectively.

Vonn, for whom the 12th-place finish is her worst downhill finish since January 2006 - apart from twice crashing out - is virtually guaranteed of winning the overall World Cup.

The American leads the standings with 1,456 points from Germany's Maria Riesch, who has 1,120 points. Anja Paerson from Sweden is third with 960 points. (dpa)
