LAKE LOUISE, Alberta (AP) — Lara Gut of Switzerland won a super-G on Sunday by three-hundredths of a second for her fourth victory of a World Cup season that is only eight races old.

She's won two super-Gs, one downhill and one slalom.

Gut finished in 1 minute, 22.86 seconds to edge Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein, while Anna Fenninger of Austria was third in 1:23.19. Wierather and Fenninger also finished 2-3 in Saturday's downhill.

Olympic downhill champion Lindsey Vonn was fifth Sunday in 1:23.71, showing more progress in her comeback from major knee surgery after coming 40th on Friday, then 11th on Saturday. Another American, Leanne Smith, was sixth in the super-G.

Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany, who won both Lake Louise downhills, was 19th Sunday.
