Lindsey Vonn rewrote the history books today as she secured a record 63rd World Cup win at the International Ski Federation (FIS) Alpine Skiing World Cup in Cortina d'Ampezzo.
The last of the favourites to take to the slope, Vonn recorded a time of 1min 27.03sec in a near flawless run to take the top spot off Austria's Anna Fenninger.
Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein was third, 0.92 back.
"I'm so happy to have finished the weekend with win number 63," Vonn said.
"My family and [boyfriend] Tiger [Woods] is here.
"It's a really, really special day."
She added: "I know it's a big achievement.
"But I have to focus on the skiing, I can't let everyone else's expectations get into my head.
"So that was my goal this weekend, just trying to ski my best and I thought I did a really good job."
It was a first win in Super-G this season for Vonn and her fourth overall this campaign, showing a return to top form after two knee injuries kept her out of last year's Sochi Olympics.
The injuries meant she could not defend the downhill title she won at Vancouver 2010, the first ever such victory for an American woman.
With her Olympic gold and bronze medals, two World Championship gold medals in 2009 - plus three silver medals in 2007 and 2011 - and four overall World Cup titles, Vonn is the most successful American ski racer in history.
Her 63 World Cup wins; 32 downhills, 21 Super-Gs, three giant slaloms, two slaloms and five combined, put her second only to Swede Ingemar Stenmark in overall World Cup wins.
Stenmark recorded 86 wins in his career that spanned from 1975 to 1989.
Vonn has indicated that she wished to compete through until the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, paving the way for a potential overhaul of Stenmark's record.
