LAKE LOUISE (AFP) - American star Lindsey Vonn claimed her 44th career Alpine World Cup women's ski win, her third triumph of the season and her second downhill victory in as many days on Saturday. Vonn won her 23rd career World Cup downhill, her ninth all-time downhill at Lake Louise in 1min 51.35secs. France's Marie Marchard-Arvier was second in 1:53.03 with Austrian Elisabeth Goergl third in 1:53.26. "It has been windy and we've had a lot of snow this week." US alpine speed queen Vonn has won both ski races since announcing she is to divorce her husband and coach, Thomas Vonn, after four years of marriage. The back-to-back triumphs on the Canadian mountain gave Vonn 10 overall World Cup victories at Lake Louise, matching Renate Goetschl's domination mark of 10 victories at one venue, the Austrian's 10 coming at Cortina d'Ampezzo. Vonn, 27, leaped into the overall World Cup lead past Germany's Viktoria Rebensburg, who missed matching Goergl's podium effort by only .01 to finish fourth on Saturday. Vonn has 322 points to 280 for Rebensburg and 211 for Goergl. Marchand-Arvier said Vonn is more than her rivals can handle. "Lindsey is very strong, I dont think we can deal with that just yet," said the Frenchwoman. "But we have to push ourselves more and maybe one day be better and beat her. This is a lot of work, a second and a half is a lot.
