ST. MORITZ, Switzerland (AP) — Lindsey Vonn dominated yet another World Cup downhill on Saturday, and was set to win by a margin of 1.42 seconds on the Engiadina course.

The result was provisional as lower-ranked racers had yet to start.

On another sunny day at St. Moritz, the American found speed that eluded her rivals to clock 1 minute, 43.65 seconds on the relatively flat 1.57-mile track.

Vonn’s eighth World Cup win this season will extend her lead in the overall and downhill standings.

Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany, the defending overall champion, was runner-up.

Tina Weirather of Liechenstein was third, 1.47 behind Vonn.
