Bode Miller Withdraws
Opens the door for Lindsey: With five World Cup races this weekend, she can clinch the title of Winningest American Ever.

With all the talk at the Olympics of a certain shapely—and amply exposed—shin, bare mention was made of another American hopeful’s sore and bothersome lower leg.

Lindsey Vonn's winning routine
Olympic gold- and bronze-medalist is poised to take her third straight women's overall World Cup title after tomorrow's downhill race in Germany.

Skiing's World Cup finals are starting this week in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, and you'll never guess who's the big favorite for the women's overall. Perhaps you've heard of her: 2010 Olympics gold- and bronze-medalist, already a two-in-a-row World Cup overall winner, has about 30-odd career World Cup wins... That's right, we're talking about a certain Ms. Lindsey Vonn.

World Cup Ski Champion Lindsey Vonn 1/10/10
America's skiing sweetheart credits her team of coaches for her stomping form this season

When we say we're "in the zone," usually we mean the Deli Zone sandwich shop over on Boulder's University Hill. But sometimes we mean we're skiing "in the zone" -- slicing the fall line like a hot knife, thinking not about how tired or old or unskilled we are but about how bomber and awesome and stardom-worthy our skiing is.

Olympic Medalist Bode Miller
Returning-to-form American ski king Bode Miller made the top of USA Today's "Athlete of the Week" list after a big win.

On the runup to this weekend's always-thrilling Hahnenkamm races in Kitzbuhel, Austria—and just a few weeks before the 2010 Olympics—Bode Miller has received a couple of well-desrved boosts. For starters, of course, he took his first World Cup win in Wengen, Switzerland, last weekend—his first in close to two years.

Sarah Schleper
Lindsey Vonn had a first-run DNF; Austria's Marlies Schild was the winner in night slalom

Vail’s Sarah Schleper continues to look like she means business in the lead-up to what certainly will be her last Olympics, while Lindsey Vonn, feeling better about her injured hand, straddled and skied out midway through the first run in Tuesday’s World Cup slalom, held under the lights at Flachau. Marlies Schild of Austria edged Maria Riesch of Germany for the win, but Vonn remains in the overall points lead by 112 points.

Lindsey Vonn Racing
American World Cup superstar finished first in both downhills this weekend, narrowly misses a third top spot in the super G. This is the 11th time Vonn has podiumed at Lake Louise.

You'll have to tell us when you're sick of reading about Lindsey Vonn. Because until that time—and maybe after it—we're going to keep telling you about her. This weekend was a big one for America's sweetheart on skis: Vonn stomped the Lake Louise World Cup downhill on Friday, and then did it again on Saturday.

Jean-Baptiste Grange at Beaver Creek
Reigning World Cup champion Grange and compatriot Thomas Fanara are both out for the season after falls; no Winter Olympics for either.

Bad news for France out of Beaver Creek. At this weekend's Birds of Prey World Cup stop, Jean-Baptiste Grange, the reigning World Cup champ, popped his knee during the giant slalom.

World Cup visits the Arctic Circle; next stops: Aspen, Beaver Creek

Short hill, bitter cold, lighted slopes and lots of Scandinavians? No wonder Lindsey Vonn felt so comfortable. “This hill reminds me so much of racing back at Buck Hill,” said the Minnesota native, who finished second, just .08 seconds behind winner Maria Riesch of Germany in Saturday’s World Cup slalom at Levi, Finland.

In the men’s race on Sunday, Ted Ligety, in 18th, and Jimmy Cochran, 19th, led the U.S. team, with Bode Miller taking a gate to the face and failing to finish the second run in his first race back as a U.S. Team skier.

The moguls star abandons his third Olympic bid: "passion wasn't there"

Olympic freeskier Jeremy Bloom officially retired from the sport this week, saying he was abandoning his bid to make his third Olympic team because “the passion wasn’t there anymore.”

 Bloom claims eleven World Cup titles—winning six straight World Cup competitions in 2005 alone—and competed in the 2002 and 2006 Winter Games, where he finished ninth and sixth, respectively.
