ZAUCHENSEE, Austria, Jan. 18 (UPI) -- Sweden's Anja Paerson and Switzerland's Dominique Gisin tied for a downhill title in Zauchensee, Austria, Sunday, with U.S. skier Lindsey Vonn finishing third.

Vonn, a Minnesota native now based in Vail, Colo., won a super-combined event Saturday. She gained enough points during the weekend to take the overall lead in the world cup standings.

"It was a good day today," the American racer said after the downhill. "The conditions were pretty fast and there were changing conditions."
