CORTINA D’AMPEZZO, Italy — Lindsey Vonn showed she’s back in form Saturday, winning a World Cup downhill for her first victory in more than five weeks Saturday in a World Cup downhill, beating overall leader Tina Maze by nearly half a second.
Vonn, who recently took 27 days off to regain her strength from an intestinal illness, clocked 1 minute, 38.25 seconds down the sun-drenched Olympia delle Tofane course. Maze finished second, 0.43 seconds behind, and Vonn’s American teammate Leanne Smith was third, 0.89 back. Bend’s Laurenne Ross finished in 27th place in 1:41.31.
