Tina Maze takes aim at record World Cup season
Tuesday, March 12, 2013
LENZERHEIDE, Switzerland (AP) -- Tina Maze is aiming for a record finish to the World Cup season, but first she needs to win the downhill.
On the men's side, Aksel Lund Svindal is looking to repeat his run of victories in 2007 in Lenzerheide, Switzerland, to beat Marcel Hirscher for the overall title.
Maze needs to win the downhill on Wednesday, followed by the super-G and slalom to sweep all the titles this season. In 46 World Cup seasons, only French great Jean-Claude Killy in 1967 has managed the feat.
The Slovenian has already locked up the overall and giant slalom trophies. Downhill defending champion Lindsey Vonn is sidelined with a knee injury.
