After winning a women’s World Cup super-G James Daniels Color Rush Jersey , Federica Brignone dedicated her victory to Italian teammate Elena Fanchini on Saturday.

The 32-year-old Fanchini had to end her season because of a tumor, forcing her out of her fourth Olympics in Pyeongchang next month.

”She is always with us, she is missing. For sure, we are all upset. This (win) was for her,” said Brignone, adding she hoped her triumph ”can help Elena to recover better.”

In the penultimate super-G before the Olympics, Brignone timed 1 minute, 9.80 seconds on the Karnten-Franz Klammer course and denied then-leader Lara Gut her first win of the season, beating the Swiss former overall champion by 0.18. Cornelia Huetter of Austria was 0.46 behind in third.

Nadia Fanchini, Elena’s younger sister Tremaine Edmunds Color Rush Jersey , trailed Brignone by 0.98 in fifth for her best result of the season.

Lindsey Vonn finished 1.43 off the lead in ninth place, a day after the American standout was considering skipping the race to avoid the risk of getting injured on the partly weakened course. However, snow conditions vastly improved after a cold night.

”As soon as I saw the course at inspection this morning, I knew I was going to run,” said Vonn, adding she was satisfied with the conditions after ”the snow was sugar” in previous days.

”For me that is a dangerous situation because I don’t have any stability then on my knee,” Vonn said. ”If it’s bumpy it’s not a problem. As long as the surface is holding and solid, it’s fine.”

Vonn badly injured her right knee skiing in soft snow at the 2013 world championships in Austria, and ultimately missed the Sochi Olympics the following year.

Wearing bib No. 2, Vonn briefly led Saturday’s race but knew she was not in contention for her 79th career victory.

”On the bottom I wasn’t as aggressive I should have been. I was a little bit too conservative Authentic Saquon Barkley Jersey ,” she said. ”It’s kind of funny because I skied the harder sections better and then the easier sections worse.”

Vonn didn’t match Brignone’s skiing, who found the right line to master some tricky turns in the course.

”It’s really bumpy, and then it’s going really straight in some parts,” Brignone said.

It was the Italian’s seventh career win, and second of the season after triumphing in a giant slalom in Lienz, Austria, last month.

Brignone became the fifth different winner of five super-G races this season.

Still aiming for her first win after coming back from knee surgery, Gut used a strong run to take an early lead in the race.

Brignone trailed by 0.08 at the last split time but made up two-tenths on the Swiss to grab the win.

”To me it’s important to show in races what I can do,” Gut said. ”I was determined to start January well and I have done that.”

Hungarian skier Edit Miklos crashed when her skis crossed shortly before finishing, and was brought to hospital with ”a possibly severe knee injury http://www.panthersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-marquis-haynes-jersey ,” according to her coach Stefan Abplanalp.

A year ago, Miklos was airlifted off the hill with a right-knee injury after crashing in a downhill training run at another Austrian resort, Zauchensee.

The race was rescheduled from Sunday after organizers swapped it with the downhill. The mandatory downhill training run will be held Sunday morning, two hours before the race.

Just about everything the Ball family does gets attention, and LiAngelo Ball’s pre-draft workout with the Lakers on Tuesday was no exception.

About two dozen members of the media watched Ball’s final drills while Magic Johnson and Lakers coach Luke Walton looked on. Lakers guard Lonzo Ball, LiAngelo’s older brother, was there for the workout as well.

”I feel like it went good,” the younger Ball said. ”It’s always fun being in here doing things I want to get better at. It was a good workout.”

LaVar Ball has been outspoken about his desire for all three of his sons – Lonzo, LiAngelo and LaMelo, the youngest – to play for the Lakers. The Lakers have the 25th pick in the first round next month http://www.eaglesauthorizedshops.com/authentic-josh-sweat-jersey , though LiAngelo Ball’s draft prospects are uncertain. He wasn’t even scheduled to be a starter at UCLA before leaving the program after being indefinitely suspended for an international incident last year in China. He also had a stint with the professional Lithuanian team Vytautas.

”It was good that (Lonzo) was here, but if he wasn’t here I would’ve been doing the same thing,” LiAngelo Ball said. ”I don’t really pay attention to who’s here and who’s not. I just do what I do.”

”I showed I can knock down shots and get some wins within the 2-on-2 and 3-on-3s,” LiAngelo said. ”I showed I can play together.”

LiAngelo Ball confirmed that he has an upcoming workout with the Golden State Warriors. He also said he’ll play in the NBA summer league, but he is not sure which team he’ll play for yet.

As far as what he believes his NBA draft prospects are, Ball said: ”I’m not sure what’s going on with the draft. I’m just playing my hardest and whatever team thinks I can produce for them, that’s who I’ll play for.”

Ball and two teammates became an international story when they were arrested for shoplifting during UCLA’s exhibition basketball trip to China last year. They were all suspended indefinitely, and LaVar Ball pulled his son out of school while he was serving that suspension.

Asked what he’ll tell NBA teams about why he left UCLA, Ball said: ”I don’t really remember too much about that. That’s a closed chapter in my life. I just moved on. Went overseas. Just learned from over there. Came back.”

LaVar had already pulled LaMelo out of high school to homeschool him and the two went to play professionally in Lithuania.

The move was heavily scrutinized.

”I think it prepared me a little better as far as going against grown men that care about their job every day,” LiAngelo Ball said. ”If you’re not producing out there Marquis Haynes Color Rush Jersey , they’ll fire you real quick.”

During the workout, Ball was reunited with former UCLA teammate Thomas Welsh, a 7-foot center who played for the Bruins for four years. They practiced together at UCLA but didn’t play together there.

”I think he’s the same guy,” Welsh said. ”He’s a hard-working kid. We had a chance to play with him on 3-on-3 and 2-on-2 live action stuff. He’s a lot of fun to play with. He works his tail off. It was really good to be back on the court with him again today.”

Among others at the Lakers workout Tuesday were guard Jaylen Adams (St. Bonaventure), guard Devon Hall (Virginia), guard Tyus Battle (Syracuse) and Dusan Ristic (Arizona).
