VAL DISERE, France - American Lindsey Vonns bid for a record-equaling 62nd World Cup win will have to wait a little while longer.The four-time World Cup winner crashed out of Sundays super-G race after entering a gate slightly too wide, as Elisabeth Goergl beat Olympic champion Anna Fenninger by .05 seconds to lead an Austrian 1-2.Although Vonn did no damage to her troublesome right knee — after only starting to race again recently following two operations — she landed heavily on her right elbow.I was risking everything and attacking the course. That sometimes happens in super-G, you dont have any training runs and you have just one inspection, Vonn said. I hit my elbow, somehow funny. I have some ice on it. Its just a little bit swollen but no big deal.After winning Saturdays downhill, Vonn was looking for a fourth consecutive podium finish and was .01 ahead of Georgls time on the first split.I didnt feel quite as sharp as I normally do, Vonn said. I was a little bit tired, yesterday was a very long day.She was looking to move level with Austrian great Annemarie Moser-Proll for all-time wins.Perhaps fittingly, Vonn can now do so at the Austrian resort of Bad Kleinkirchheim, where there is a downhill and a super-G set for Jan. 10-11.After going too tightly into a turn, Vonn went inside on her skis and slid off course, prompting gasps from fans at the bottom of the Oreiller-Killy course. She lay on her back for a few moments then flexed her right leg, before getting up.I was on the limit and hit some softer snow and lost a little bit of elevation, and then I wasnt able to make the gate, the 30-year-old Vonn said. The most important thing is my knees are good.Overall leader Tina Maze of Slovenia finished third, .13 behind Georgl.The course today was really tricky and I kind of like that, the 33-year-old Goergl said. My coaches reported that there were some weird turns.It was the former super-G world champions seventh World Cup race win, and her first since winning a super-G in the Italian resort of Cortina dAmpezzo in January. Goergl finished second in Saturdays downhill.Fenninger has three podiums this season, having won the season-opening giant slalom in Soelden, Austria, in late October and finishing second in downhill at Lake Louise, Canada, earlier this month.Swiss skier Lara Gut was looking for her second super-G win of the season and finished .23 behind in fourth.Italian Nadia Fanchini placed fifth ahead of American Julia Mancuso.The course on Sunday, with its fast top section and sudden changes of direction, proved hard to tame.Fabienne Suter of Switzerland, Austrias Regina Sterz and German Viktoria Rebensburg, who was third in Saturdays downhill, all made much the same mistake, taking a right turn too fast and veering off course as they approached the mid-section.I dont know why the others had so (many) problems. My timing was pretty good, the 25-year-old Fenninger said. You never know because Super-G is so different from downhill. Everything has to be perfect on the course.Maze thought she could have done a little better.It was a little tough at the top, I had some trouble, said Maze, the 2013 World Cup winner, who is competing in all five disciplines. If I hadnt lost too much time, it would have been a better race.Maze leads overall with 656 points; Fenninger is second with 407, while Vonn is third with 312.Its hard doing all the events, Maze said. I didnt have so much energy. Danny Salazar Indians Jersey . THE THUNDER & PACERS BENCHES: In a nutshell, not impressive at all.

Canada ran roughshod over Barbados in a 68-5 victory to bounce back from a 39-0 loss to defending champion earlier in the day. "We let ourselves down big time in that first game and it was a chance for them to redeem themselves," said coach Kieran Crowley. John Moonlight, Mike Scholtz and Ciaran Hearn scored two tries apiece as Canada bounced back from a 39-0 loss to defending champion New Zealand earlier in the day. Nathan Hirayama, Harry Jones, Connor Braid and Justin Douglas had one try apiece, while Hirayama was good on all six conversions and Braid booted three. The Canadians face Scotland in their final game of the day, needing a victory in front of whats sure to be a jam-packed Ibrox Stadium -- normally home to Rangers F.C. -- to be in the medal mix on Sunday. "Home ground, 50-odd thousand people here roaring for them, so it will be massive," Crowley said. New Zealand eged Scotland 17-14 to clinch Pool A. The Canadians faced an eight-hour break between games before taking the pitch against Scotland, and werent pleased about it. "We went through the channels to put complaints in about it," Crowley said. "And in the end it came down to TV scheduling and things like that which is not the ideal thing as far as were concerned. "A couple of other teams are in the same boat as us. Theyre not going to change it, it is what it is, weve got to deal with it." The Canadians, who had been at the storied stadium since shortly after 7 a.m. to begin warmup, planned to remain there all day rather than return to the athletes village. Large tents with mattresses had been assembled behind the stadium. "We talked about it before coming to the tournament, how were going to rest and recover," Jones said. "Brought some board games, might have a quick nap just to kill the time. "The biggest thing is not to turn off too much, obviously wwe didnt show up in that first game, and that was a bit wakeup call and we cant do that again.dddddddddddd" Board game of choice: Settlers of Catan. The Canadians were drawn into arguably the tournaments toughest group with three of the worlds core teams -- New Zealand, Scotland and themselves. They were no match for the mighty New Zealand All-Blacks earlier in the day. The bigger and faster All-Blacks thoroughly dominated the Canadians, swatting away their tackle attempts like they were brushing away pesky flies. "Our own defence and penalties let us down," Braid said. "We had systems in place but we fell apart when it came time. Whether it was jitters or not, we have to make sure that stuffs gone. . ." DJ Forbes and Ben Lam scored two tries apiece, and Bryce Heem, Tim Mikkelson and Akira Ioane had one each. New Zealand is gunning for its fifth gold medal in rugby sevens, having won the title all four times the sport has been in the Games. Rugby sevens, which will make its Olympic debut in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, was touted as a sure highlight of the Commonwealth Games, played before capacity crowds in the 51,000-seat storied Ibrox Stadium. The arena was packed from the opening game -- Canada vs. New Zealand -- and during Canadas second game, the noisy crowd roared when Sean Ward scored the lone try for fledgling Barbados. The Canadians say theyre prepared for a stiff test against the Scots on Saturday night. "We had a bit of a taste a couple of months ago, but obviously this is a little bit different, packed house here, but weve played in big stadiums against big teams before," Jones said. "Its nothing new to the guys, obviously the Scottish fans are going to be on their home side the whole time but well just have to deal with that when it comes." Canada edged Scotland earlier this season in the semifinals of the Glasgow IRB Sevens World Series stop. The Canadians made history by reaching the final for the first time, only to be trounced 54-7 by New Zealand in the final. ' ' '
