Lindsey Vonn hailed an "incredible" weekend after she made it two wins out of two at the International Ski Federation (FIS) World Cup in Cortina d'Ampezzo.

After breaking Annemarie Moser-Proell's 36-year-old record for the most World Cup downhill victories in the Italian resort yesterday, the 31-year-old American added super-G victory under a sunny sky today.

She descended in a time of 1 min 26.55 sec to finish ahead of Liechtenstein's Tina Weirather, who was 0.69 behind her, and third-placed Viktoria Rebensburg of Germany who came in 1.15 back.

Vonn, whose downhill win was her 37th, equalled another record as she tied Renate Goetschl’s mark of 10 wins in Cortina.

Her triumph today also means she goes back into first spot in the overall World Cup standings, as she has leap-frogged Switzerland's Lara Gut who could only manage fifth.

"This weekend has been incredible,” said Vonn, the 31-year-old Vancouver 2010 Olympic downhill champion.

“I feel like all of the speed weekends have been amazing, and I’m just skiing really well, skiing confident and skiing dynamic and I think it was interesting to see the course set today.

"I think it was set a little more technical and people thought that maybe I wouldn’t be able to win with that set.

"But I’m a good turner.

"I won in Are, so I think I’ve proven I can turn well.

"It was just really fun.

"The snow here is absolutely perfect and you know, you have to enjoy it and enjoy the moment as well.

"This place is incredibly special for me and I’ve broken quite a few records here now."

Vonn now has 900 points in the overall standings with Gut second on 855 and Sweden's Frida Hansdotter third on 661.

Meanwhile, Norway's Henrik Kristoffersen won his third straight slalom race as the men's World Cup continued in Kitzbühel in Austria.

It was a fifth win of the season for the 21-year-old who recorded a winning time of 1:43.96 after his two runs.

That was enough to edge Austria's Marcel Hirscher, the winner of the past four overall World Cups, into second as the 26-year-old was 0.03 adrift in front of his home supporters.

Germany's Fritz Dopper did enough for bronze, 0.45 behind Kristoffersen.

Incredibly, the Norwegian was only 12th after his first run, due to two big mistakes, but in tricker conditions second time around he made up the ground on his rivals.

Hirscher's second place saw him cut the gap at the top of the overall standings, with the Austrian now on 889 points behind Norway's leader Aksel Lund Svindal, who has 916 and wasn't in action today.

Kristoffersen is third on 771 but leads the slalom classification.

The men's World Cup will now move to another Austrian resort, Schladming, for a slalom race on Tuesday (January 26).

The women will head to Maribor in Slovenia for giant slalom and slalom on January 30 and 31.
