Lindsey Vonn claimed her second win in two days at the Alpine Skiing World Cup event in Austria with victory in the super-G event.

Vonn finished 0.70 seconds clear of Switzerland's Lara Gut, with Austrian Cornelia Huetter a further 0.55 seconds back in Altenmarkt Zauchensee.

The American also won Saturday's downhill event.

That equalled Annemarie Moser-Proll's record tally of 36 World Cup downhill wins.

The 31-year-old now has 73 overall World Cup wins - 13 short of Ingemar Stenmark's record.

Vonn leads the World Cup super-G standings by 80 points over Hutter, and is now within 38 points of Lara Gut in the overall standings.

"It's a perfect start to the new year," she said. "Hopefully I can just continue on in this direction and keep winning."
