You know that old saying that it’s better to be lucky than good? Well Lindsey Vonn is good, but right now one of her knees is busted and it still doesn’t matter, because Vonn won her sixth straight World Cup downhill title after Wednesday’s race in Lenzerheide, Switzerland, was canceled because of fog. The cancellation allowed Vonn to win the title by one point over Tina Maze of Slovenia.”OMG I won the World Cup Downhill title!!!!! 6 in a row with a bum knee! Everything in life comes back around,” Vonn tweeted after the race was canceled. Maze only needed to finish in the top 14 on Wednesday to seal the victory, but she was gracious about the loss, knowing that two years ago it was Vonn who was denied a fourth straight overall title when weather canceled the season-ending GS in Lenzerheide. That year Vonn lost by three points to Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany.
