Vonn now has 14 career World Cup season titles, the most ever for any American woman, and she’s on course to win two more this year — her fourth overall globe and fourth super-G title.

On the famed Kandahar downhill course at Garmisch, Germany February 4, Vonn won her 50th World Cup race (third most victories for a woman in cup history). The win also gave her 25 career downhill victories, the second most career women’s DH wins.

Winning her first giant slalom World Cup race in October made her a member of the exclusive circle of all-event winners, joining seven other female alpine legends.

The 28-year-old Olympic champion from Vail, Colorado took home the Gold Medal in the 2010 women’s downhill race in Vancouver, the first ever in the event for an American woman.
