Lindsey Vonn continued her World Cup speed event dominance by following up her downhill win at Lake Louise, Alberta, with a super-G victory on Saturday at St. Moritz, Switzerland. U.S. teammate Julia Mancuso finished third, with World Cup overall leader Tina Maze placing second.

Vonn, 28, has won each of the four speed races she’s entered this season. Coming only eight days after Lake Louise, she won St. Moritz for the fourth straight season. It’s her 57th career World Cup win, the second most in skiing history, and her 20th in super-G.

American women have crushed the competition on the speed side of alpine skiing this season. Mancuso placed second in the Lake Louise super-G, while Mammoth’s Stacy Cook finished second to Vonn in the Lake Louise downhill.
