More to come from Vonn in Lake Louise

Lindsey Vonn knows she can improve on her impressive training run when she gets back to downhill action in Lake Louise over the coming days.

The Canadian resort hosts the first two speed events of the new FIS Alpine Skiing Ladies World Cup season, with Vonn having won the race on 14 previous occasions.

Vonn was second fastest in Thursday's training with a time of one minute and 48.29 seconds, the skiing legend 0.15s behind Ester Ledecka.

And the 33-year-old, who is just nine World Cup victories short of Ingemar Stenmark's record of 86, is confident she has more in the locker ahead of back-to-back downhill races.

"It was a solid training run but I can definitely clean up a few sections for tomorrow," said Vonn.

"I'm confident I feel good. Today was solid and a good sign for the weekend.

"I was just a little too straight up top. Everyone seemed faster than me up top, I just need to stay out of the soft snow.

"It always feels the same here I love it here."
