Olympic Champion Lindsey Vonn clinched her third straight World Cup Overall title with a super G victory Friday in Germany, according to the U.S. ski team Web site.
"It's so important to me [to win the overall]. The overall title is one of the biggest things you can win in our sport. I always try to give my best every day, but it's a long season,"Â Vonn said in an article on the team's site. "The last few years have gone really well for me. It's so hard to say whether you'll be able to win the overall title. To stand here in the finish and have a title in my hand is so rewarding."
Her super G victory also marked her 33rd win in her career, knocking off the record held by Bode Miller, who held the record with 32 wins.
Vonn, a fan favorite, won two Olympic medals, including a gold (when she became the first American to win the women's downhill at the Olympics) in Vancouver, Canada.
