Lindsey Vonn won the downhill double in Germany as she claimed her 81st World Cup win on Sunday in the build-up to the start of the Winter Olympics.

On the back of her success on Saturday, the 33-year-old American clocked one minute 37.92 seconds for victory.

Italy's Sofia Goggia, who is the overall downhill leader, was again second - like a day earlier - as she finished just 0.11s behind Vonn.

Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein was third.

Vonn is now only five behind Swede Ingemar Stenmark's all-time alpine record of 86 World Cup wins.

She is also second in the overall downhill rankings and just 23 points behind Goggia.
