Vail's Lindsey Vonn took the women's overall title for a second straight year yesterday as she beat the pack in the last downhill event of the season during World Cup finals in Sweden. Vonn tells The Associated Press that her streak is "huge": "No American female has ever done that so it means a lot." There are three races left at the finals, and Vonn is dominating the overall standings. She also has a chance to win the super-G title, like she did at world championships last month, trailing Fabienne Suter of Switzerland by only 15 points.
