Vonn Wants To Take On Men In World Cup

Vonn Wants To Take On Men In World Cup, She's won everything in women's skiing, and now the glamorous star has her eye on a new challenge. Vonn wants to take on the men in World Cup race, The four-times overall World Cup champion sent a letter to men's race director Gunter Hujara, asking him about the possibility of competing in the men's downhill at Lake Louise, Alberta, where the first speed events of the season are taking place. At this time, the women will be in Aspen, Colorado, racing a slalom and giant slalom.

Hujara and the Alpine Board considered the matter in Zurich this week during the FIS Autumn Meetings. "We have been talking about it but no decision has been taken yet, it's a matter that the FIS Council has to examine during its next meeting in November," said Norway's Atle Skaardal, the women's World Cup race director. "It's necessary to go through the rules to see if there is a way to do this and also a reason to do it. "It's complicated because no racer is supposed to ski on a race course a week prior to his or her own competition.
