Vonn sealed the super-combined title when the third race of the season in the event was canceled because of bad weather last week in Crans-Montana, Switzerland. That left Vonn with 160 points from two races, and Anja Paerson of Sweden second with 150. FIS confirmed that two races were enough for Vonn to win the title.

Vonn earned gold in the downhill and bronze in the super-G at the Vancouver Olympics.

Vonn crashed and bruised her right knee during the giant slalom Thursday but is expected to compete today in the super-G in an attempt to win her third straight overall title.

Vonn fell in first run of the giant slalom when her skis locked, she spun in the air and crashed into the safety netting. She skied down the slope and was taken away from the race area for medical evaluation.

"I'm going to race (today)," Vonn said. "I'm not going to back down from this and at this point, I'm used to fighting through pain."
