- Vonn wins first race since injury return
- Lara Gut finishes second
- Gut claims Sunday's super-G, Vonn ninth
- Dave Ryding equals British best in Kitzbuehel slalom
(CNN)An emotional Lindsey Vonn claimed the 77th World Cup win of her career after a scintillating downhill run in only her second race since returning from a broken arm.
The American pipped Swiss star Lara Gut to victory by just 0.15 seconds and finished 0.48 seconds ahead of home favorite Viktoria Rebensburg in third.
"It feels amazing. I just got to the bottom, and I cried," a teary-eyed Vonn told FIS Ski after her second run at Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany.
"I worked really hard to come back and you know, I feel like sometimes I come back so quickly, everyone forgets how much time and energy, blood, sweat and tears it takes to come back without any training and just jump in there.
"And I had to trust myself and my team and my technician, and we all did our best and today was just amazing."
