ST. MORITZ, Switzerland — Lindsey Vonn was fastest in a downhill training run on Thursday as she pursues a record-extending 64th World Cup win.

The American racer timed 1 minute, 48.26 seconds on the Engiadina course, 0.64 seconds faster than Johanna Schnarf of Italy.

Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein was third, trailing 0.75 behind Vonn. American Stacey Cook was fourth, 0.85 back.

Vonn is the favorite for the downhill on Saturday and a super-G on Sunday after winning both events at Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy.

Those victories gave Vonn 63 career World Cup wins, overtaking Austrian great Annemarie Moser-Proell.

St. Moritz is the last women's World Cup stop before the world championships start Feb. 2 in Vail-Beaver Creek, Colorado.
