Vonn scoops 2nd gold at Val d'Isere World Ski Championships

Those taking ski holidays in Val d'Isere may this week have witnessed American Downhill specialist Lindsey Vonn collect her second gold medal of the World Ski Championships.

Vonn added to her success in the Super G to claim gold in what was a closely fought Downhill race.

She fought off an impressive second-placed Lara Gut and Italy's Nadia Fanchini to emerge victorious in an event that was a priority for the American star.

"My goal was to win the world Downhill and I'm thrilled of pulling through despite the hard conditions. Today was a dream come true for me," she said.

The young Swiss skier Gut revealed that she had been troubled with stomach pains, but said it was "fantastic" to take home a second silver.

Vonn, who has now collected four world medals in two years, revealed in a press conference that her husband had been a particular inspiration, helping to calm and focus her before the start of race.
