Vonn wins super-g to stay on World Cup title course

Lindsey VonnBansko, Bulgaria  - Lindsey Vonn of the United States moved closer to winning the overall alpine ski women's World Cup title with a third successive super-g victory Sunday.

The 24-year-old title-holder clocked 1 minute 14.49 seconds at the Bulgarian resort of Bansko, 0.58 seconds ahead of Fabienne Suter of Switzerland and 0.91 seconds up on Tina Maze of Slovenia.

Suter meanwhile continued her recent fine form with her fourth podium finish in as many races. dpa
