Lindsey Vonn wins, World Cup downhill title

Lindsey Vonn won World Cup downhill title after thick fog forced the final race to be cancelled on Wednesday, and the World Cup finals are not rescheduled.

Vonn overtaking Maze in the accumulated points in the five downhills she raced before her injury, Vonn scored 340 points, Maze 339.
Five weeks after her season was ended by a serious knee injury, Vonn retained her title by beating Tina Maze of Slovenia by one point.

Fog hung on the lower slopes all day and earlier forced the International Ski Federation to cancel the men's downhill. The women's race was canceled at 2:30 p.m. (1330 GMT), three hours after its scheduled start.

Maze has dominated the season but lost a historic chance at sweeping the World Cup titles. Maze needed to only finish in the top 14 to top the downhill standings.

In a strange twist, Vonn was denied a fourth straight overall title in 2011 by the weather in Lenzerheide.

Then, the season-ending giant slalom was cancelled and Vonn lost by three points to her good friend Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany.
