Gagnon wins combined event, injured Vonn takes 13th
SOLDEU-EL TARTER, Andorra (AP) Marie-Michele Gagnon of Canada won a women's World Cup Alpine combined event on Sunday, and Lindsey Vonn placed 13th while competing with a fractured knee.
Wearing braces on both knees, the American led the competition after the super-G portion but posted only the 23rd time in the slalom run to finish 1.93 seconds behind Gagnon.
Vonn crashed in Saturday's super-G race after catching a spot of soft snow. She later said she had sustained a hairline fracture.
Vonn's main rival for the overall title, Lara Gut of Switzerland, straddled a gate in the slalom and failed to score points. Vonn extended her lead to 28 points.
Gagnon led Wendy Holdener of Switzerland by 0.20, and Anne-Sophie Barthet of France by 0.61 for her second career win.
