US skier Lindsey Vonn secured her fourth straight super-G World Cup trophy here Thursday, as Germany's Viktoria Rebensburg won the discipline's final race of the season.
With the overall, downhill and super-combined trophies already in the bag, 27-year-old Vonn also made it an even four this season with the super-G crystal globe, ahead of second-placed compatriot Julia Mancuso.
Rebensburg won the race with a time of 1min 24.54sec, 0.18 seconds ahead of Mancuso.
Although a two-time junior world champion in the super-G, this was the 22-year-old German's first ever World Cup win in the discipline.
Vonn had a superb run and was due for victory but made a crucial mistake near the end of the course and finished just sixth.
Vonn however failed to break the season record of 2,000 points set by Austria's Hermann Maier, as she hoped. Thursday's performance took her to 1,948 points.
"It was a great opportunity to make these 2,000 points but I still have the giant slalom (Sunday) and I'll try everything," she said after the race.
"Everything's still possible. Unfortunately, today it didn't work out."
And the super-G World Cup trophy was no small consolation.
"I'm very happy with my performance (this season). Every crystal globe is nice."
Rebensburg meanwhile looks set to take the giant slalom trophy over the weekend.
"It looks good but still you never know. In any case, I'll have to ski well and hopefully there'll be a good result for me."
