For her first victory since a high-speed crash in early 2013, the four-time overall World Cup champion charged down the 3km course in a time of one minute, 50.48 seconds.

It was the first US one-two-three in the alpine World Cup.

Timely tweet
Vonn's performance caught the eye of boyfriend Tiger Woods, who was struggling with illness in his own return to competition across the continent in Florida on Saturday.

"I competed and Linds won," the golf star said on Twitter, briefly summing up the day for the high-profile couple.
