It's getting harder and harder to find new ways to describe Lindsey Vonn's triumphs.
So, let's turn to the most basic form of cataloging -- by the numbers -- to summarize what the U.S. ski star did this weekend in Haus, Austria, winning two downhills and today's super-G. In the video above, from the U.S. ski team, Vonn describes her triumph today.
No matter what math you use, they are adding up to a career that needs only an Olympic medal next month to be described as the greatest in U.S. alpine skiing history.
And Vonn still is only 25 years old.
3: Wins in 3 straight days. Never before done by a U.S. skier.
13: Number of years since a woman won three World Cup races in three days. Katja Seizinger of Germany was the last.
28: Vonn's career wins on the World Cup circuit. Second highest –- behind Bode Miller’s 31 -– by a U.S. skier.
6: Vonn's wins on the World Cup circuit season. No other man or woman has more than three.
9: Number of podium finishes for Vonn in 17 World Cup races this season.
