ALTENMARKT-ZAUCHENSEE, Austria (AP) Lindsey Vonn won a women's World Cup downhill on Saturday for her 36th career victory in the discipline, matching Austrian great Annemarie Moser-Proell's all-time best mark.

Vonn, who held a comfortable lead after the first run, finished in an aggregate time of 2 minutes, 11.17 seconds, one second ahead of Larisa Yurkiw of Canada.

Cornelia Huetter of Austria was 1.66 behind in third. Overall leader Lara Gut failed to finish the opening run and didn't score points. The Swiss skier remains in the lead, 58 points clear of Vonn.

It was the first women's two-run downhill on a shortened course in 14 years.
