BY foxsports • March 17, 2016

ST. MORITZ, Switzerland (AP) Lara Gut won the season-long super-G title on Thursday, finishing second behind Tina Weirather at the World Cup finals and overtaking the injured Lindsey Vonn for the crystal globe.

The overall champion from Switzerland was only 19 points behind Vonn heading into the final race and needed to finish at least sixth to surpass the American, who injured her knee in a crash in a super-G in Andorra last month.

Gut finished 0.41 seconds behind Weirather on the Corviglia slope, with Cornelia Huetter third, 0.59 seconds off the pace.

Huetter finished fourth in the super-G standings, just behind Vonn, who was in St. Moritz after flying in to pick up her downhill title on Wednesday.
