Street Is On Track

LAKE LOUISE, Canada () -- Picabo Street is back with a vengeance. The defending Alpine Ski World Cup women's downhill champion from the United States picked up Sunday where she left off last season, winning the first race of the season.


"I ran the line I wanted to today and skied the way I wanted to ski and proved to myself once again that I know best for myself," Street said.


Street, 24, ripped up the 2,338-meter, 31-gate course in a time of one minute, 26.61 seconds.


Street, who won one of two downhills run at Lake Louise, Canada, last season and whose win was her sixth consecutive dating back to Cortina, Italy, last year, bettered Germany's Katja Seizinger by .43 seconds.


Russian Warwara Zelenskaja was third in 1:27.30.
