Hannes Reichelt of Austria won a super-G race yesterday for his first World Cup victory less than nine months after tearing knee ligaments, while Bode Miller skied off-course in snowy and windy conditions. Miller failed to navigate a gate about halfway down the Birds of Prey course in Beaver Creek, Colo. It was the third straight disappointing showing for the reigning super-G and overall World Cup champion. A bobsled accident that left a German coach with head and leg injuries at the Turin Olympic course is being investigated by Olympic organizers.

Lindsey Vonn won the super-G season finale at the World Cup finals in Are, Sweden, becoming the first American woman to capture the championship title in the discipline. Vonn earned her third crystal globe this season, tying the U.S. record set by Phil Mahre in 1982. The 24-year-old Vonn finished the Olympia course in 1 minute, 20.63 seconds. A day earlier, she clinched the World Cup overall title for the second straight year by winning downhill. "I was hoping so much that I could win today and get the super-G globe; no American female has ever done that," Vonn said.

Lindsey Vonn won her fourth straight super-G yesterday at the women's World Cup event in Bansko, Bulgaria. The 24-year-old won the super-G a day after clinching the downhill title, joining her idol, Picabo Street, as the only Americans to win back-to-back titles in the discipline. The defending overall World Cup champion, Vonn widened her lead in the standings to nearly 400 points. Steven Holcomb was the class of the field on all four runs of the four-man competition at Mount Van Hoevenberg in Lake Placid, N.Y., and piloted the USA-1 four-man bobsled to the gold medal.

Bode Miller isn't off to the same flying start as last season. The American finished eighth in a World Cup super-G in Val Gardena, Italy, yesterday, and lost his short-lived lead in the overall standings. Hans Grugger of Austria won his first career super-G, and Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway finished fifth to regain the lead he lost to Miller a week ago. Miller, though, trails by just two points. Miller has won only one race this season, a giant slalom in Beaver Creek, Colo.

Hermann Maier won a super-G yesterday at Lake Louise, Alberta, for his 54th career World Cup win. Maier, who last won a World Cup race in January 2006 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, won in 1 minute, 29.84 seconds. "To win here is a great feeling," said "The Herminator," whose training was hampered since September because of a disc problem in his lower back. "Today I risked. You can't win a race without risk. " Canada's John Kucera was second in 1:30.43, and Switzerland's Didier Cuche was third in 1:30.

Olympic organizers resisted the urge to celebrate yesterday's rare sunshine by making the skiers complete all the Alpine events in one day, so yes, there is still action left for tonight. Barring any more weather disasters, the main event will be live, prime-time coverage of the women's downhill. That means if Picabo Street backs up her gold medal in the Super-G with another, you won't have to wait 24 hours to watch it. This should do wonders for CBS's ratings, which have been so paltry the network is considering throwing an episode of "Everybody Loves Raymond" into their slow evenings.

Already perfect in the downhill this season, Lindsey Vonn looks unstoppable in the super-G, too. She won for the seventh time this season, regained the lead in the overall standings - perhaps for good - and sent a clear signal that she is indeed ready as the Vancouver Olympics near. "Sometimes people just get this feeling that everything is clicking and everything is working well together," she said. Vonn sped down the twisting Olympia delle Tofane course in Cortina D'Ampezzo, Italy, yesterday in 1 minute, 21.74 seconds.

Franzi Aufdenblatten posted her first World Cup victory in leading a 1-2 Swiss finish in a super-G in Val d'Isere, France, and Lindsey Vonn placed third to retake sole possession of the lead in the overall standings. The 28-year-old Aufdenblatten upset the favorites to finish in 1 minute, 26.43 seconds on the Oreiller-Killy course, 0.23 seconds ahead of Nadia Styger . Aufdenblatten's previous best World Cup result was the third place she twice took in downhills. "Somebody told me that it happened after more than 200 races," Aufdenblatten said of her winning drought.

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia - There's a point in Downhill Racer when an American coach confronts a self-centered, troublesome, but extremely talented skier, his country's best hope for Olympic gold. "All you ever had was skis," the coach tells him. "And that's not enough. " Soon Bode Miller, so like Robert Redford's headstrong character in the 1969 film, will find out if the skis were enough. Thirty-six now, he's not yet over the hill. But he's been at its summit for a while, and he can see there's not far to travel.

Lindsey Vonn finished with a fitting flourish, the perfect way to cap a nearly perfect season, one chock full of victories, medals, trophies - and injuries. Now the American is looking forward to some well-earned time away from the slopes. A day after bruising her right knee in a crash, and skiing with her broken right pinkie protected by a green molded cast, Vonn clinched her third consecutive World Cup overall title yesterday with a U.S.-record 33rd career race win in a super-G at Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany.

VANCOUVER - It isn't the record number of medals that make Bode Miller romantic. It isn't the gold he finally won yesterday. It's that Miller wants to ski as fast as he can, and he wants to ski fastest every time, every race, regardless of the standings. He skied that way in the slalom portion of the super-combined last evening and clawed back from the seventh-place hole he'd dug after the earlier downhill. He finished 0.33 seconds ahead of Croatia's Ivica Kostelic and 0.40 ahead of Silvan Zurbriggen, of Switzerland.

WHISTLER, BRITISH COLUMBIA - The three women's speed races are over now. If they didn't turn out to be quite the fairy tale America had imagined for Lindsey Vonn, it's because they played out too much like the Goldilocks story for her. She went too fast in one, too slow in another, just right in the third. Vonn earned a bronze medal in the women's Super G yesterday at Whistler Creek, her second medal of these Winter Olympics and a seventh for the record-setting U.S. ski team.

Maybe it's because his mom is here watching, but Bad Bode has morphed into Good Bode at these 2010 Winter Olympics. Bode Miller, the talented, free-spirited American who disappointed and misbehaved at the 2006 Games in Turin, Italy, has been a reborn skier and a perfect guest in Canada. Miller won a second medal here yesterday, improving on the downhill bronze he captured earlier with a silver in the Super G on a spectacularly sunny day at Whistler Creekside. Fellow American Andrew Weibrecht took the bronze, giving the U.S. a seventh multiple-medal event at these Games.

WHISTLER, British Columbia - Call him a late bloomer. Eight years after his first medal and 4 years after he did a number on himself, his fans and the fools who sponsored him, Bode Miller made another Olympic memory yesterday by adding a silver medal in the men's super-G, while skiing on the faster, more difficult-to-maneuver downhill skis. "I was lucky today," he said. "On a lot of gates, I felt pinched in. I couldn't get my turns. "I could have easily been fifth or sixth.
