Default Lindsey Vonn becomes the first American woman to win the World Cup overall title twic

For a while, Lindsey Vonn was famous for a horrifying fall during a training run for the Turin Olympic downhill ski race.

Now, she's famous for standing atop the podium -- a lot.

Vonn, of Vail, Colo., on Wednesday became the first American woman to win the World Cup overall title twice, clinching her second successive crown by winning the last downhill of the season in Are, Sweden.

Vonn, who won two gold medals at this year's world championships, finished the course in 1 minute 42.49 seconds to ensure she'd keep the overall lead with three races left.

She previously clinched the downhill title and could add the super-giant slalom title: She trails Fabienne Suter of Switzerland by 15 points entering today's race.
