Congrats to Ms Vonn for a job well done. Mad skiing skillz for sure.

post #5 of 13

Did any other female skier have more victories, than Vonn, ever???

Just curious about the stats.

great part of Germany, tho more than a little touristy in Berchtesgaden town area...Lofer is a cool little town on the way to Kitzbuehel too -- used to be a great little shop in town that sold Geiger display clothing from the really expensive stores in Salzburg.  Fun drive over the little pass from Germany, really nice from there further into Austria down to Autobahn A12 or directly south to Zell am See.

Vonn gets her 50th - Universal Sports Video

 

 

Quick replay of her bobble-recovery at 2:04.

post #10 of 13

When Annemarie Moser-Proll won 62 victories (to take nothing away from that) the sport was not nearly so competitive.  There has been very little domination in the last few decades as there was during the reign of  Proell, the Marhe bros., Stenmark etc.  These days, before Vonn, many individual discipline crystal globes are won by winning 2 or 3 races and placing well in others.  What Vonn is showing us at mid career, consistently winning by the huge margins she does, is probably the best ski racing ever, men or women.  It's thrilling to watch, especially considering the personal turmoil (which is hard to figure out) she is going through.

Her strength is inspiring - she and Bode Miller can recover like nobody's business.  They remind me of John Elway, who could complete a pass downfield while being tackled.

 

Nasty edge she almost caught there, but what a recovery.  Hard to believe she is mid-career, she's really skiing as well as ever right now.

On the other side, there was also less chances for victories in those days ;) For example in season 1979/80 (I just picked random year), there was 7 men DH races, 1 women DH race, 8 men GS races and 4 women GS, 8 men SL and 2 women SL, and 4 men and 1 women combination race (mostly consisted from already mentioned DH and SL races, not like today when SC is it's own race). So getting 62 victories when you have all together 8 races a year is a bit harder then getting 50 victories, when you have 41 races a year... even if competition is bigger these years then it was ;)
