CORTINA D'AMPEZZO, Italy, (Reuters) - Lindsey Vonn became the most successful female in Alpine skiing World Cup history on Monday when she won a Super-G to claim her 63rd victory in the competition.

Tied with Austrian Annemarie Moser-Proell on 62 wins after her triumph in Sunday's downhill at the same Italian course, the American now has the most victories.

The four-times overall World Cup champion has collected 32 wins in the downhill, 21 Super-G's, an event that did not exist in Moser-Proell’s time, three giant slaloms, two slaloms and five combineds.

The men’s record of 86 wins is held by Swede Ingemar Stenmark.
