PLAYERS: Lindsey Vonn

Mother Nature knocked Lindsey Vonn off the ski circuit five weeks ago and the fickle lady helped the skier win a record sixth straight World Cup downhill title without Vonn even showing up on the mountain. Fog forced the International Ski Federation to cancel the men's and women's downhill on Wednesday, leaving the injured Vonn with a one point lead over the overall champion Tina Maze of Slovenia for the downhill title. Ironically, it was bad weather that Vonn blamed on her season-ending knee injury that jeopardized her career after taking a violent spill during the Super G in Austria on Feb. 5. Vonn was excited about retaining her title and tweeted, "Omg I won the World Cup Downhill!!!!! 6 in a row with a bum knee! Everything in life comes back around...." Omg I won the World Cup Downhill title!!!!! 6 in a row with a bum knee! Everything in life comes back around.... fb.me/DHefBqkD — lindsey vonn (@lindseyvonn) March 13, 2013 Vonn was probably referring back to 2011 when she was denied a chance at a fourth overall title due to similar weather conditions that cancelled a race.  Vonn ended up losing to her pal Maria Hoefl-Riesch by three points. Hoefl-Riesch — who had a slim chance at winning the downhill title — tweeted back: "Congrats to @lindseyvonn for the dh globe! Now you know how I felt 2 years ago ;-),"
