Injured Lindsey Vonn takes gold on rough and bumpy course

Home mountain advantage couldn’t put Britt Janyk on the podium


In an exciting women’s downhill competition, American favourite Lindsey Vonn took the gold easily. Despite a recent shin injury, she aced a difficult course that did in many of her competitors. Vonn’s teammate Julia Mancuso came in second and Elisabeth Goergl of Austria won the bronze. Canadian favourite Britt Janyk, who grew up on the Whistler mountain, was sixth. But at least she stayed up. There were plenty of crashes on a course that, days before the event, competitors were calling “rough” and “bumpy.”
