01/21 06:55 CST Back in form after knee surgery, Gut wins Cortina super-G Back in form after knee surgery, Gut wins Cortina super-G By ANDREW DAMPF AP Sports Writer CORTINA D'AMPEZZO, Italy (AP) --- Lara Gut won the final World Cup super-G before the Olympics on Sunday, signaling a return to form after knee surgery last season. It was the Swiss skier's first victory since winning the downhill in Cortina almost a year ago. In a race on a shortened course that was shaped by strong winds, overcast conditions and overnight snowfall, Gut clocked 1 minute, 14.78 seconds for a 0.14-second advantage over Johanna Schnarf of Italy. Nicole Schmidhofer of Austria finished third, 0.27 behind. Lindsey Vonn, the record holder in Cortina with 12 wins, was slowed by a strong gust of wind and finished sixth, 0.37 back. Overall World Cup leader Mikaela Shiffrin missed a gate midway through her run and Italian favorite Sofia Goggia hit a gate and also did not finish.
