LENZERHEIDE, Switzerland — Lindsey Vonn had the weather on her side when it came down to deciding a World Cup title.
Fog canceled racing on Wednesday, giving the injured Vonn a record sixth straight World Cup downhill title without having to show up on the mountain. The title comes five weeks after a crash and season-ending knee injury for the American.
The cancellation allowed Vonn to retain her title — just one point ahead of overall champion Tina Maze of Slovenia.
“Omg I won the World Cup Downhill title!!!!! 6 in a row with a bum knee!" Vonn wrote on her Facebook page.
Maze was trying to become the first woman to win five crystal globes in a season — the overall and four discipline titles.
Bend’s Laurenne Ross finished the season in 16th place in the downhill standings.
