Speeding up return, Vonn 2nd in downhill training

AP - Sports

VAL D'ISERE, France (AP) -- Lindsey Vonn had the second-fastest run in World Cup downhill training Thursday as she increased the pace in her comeback from injury.

The American finished only 0.04 seconds behind Dominique Gisin of Switzerland, who clocked 1 minute, 49.07 seconds on the Oreiller-Killy course.

Defending overall champion Tina Maze was third, 0.16 behind.

The downhill race is scheduled for Saturday with a giant slalom to follow on Sunday.

Vonn has five World Cup wins in Val d'Isere and also won two golds at the 2009 world championships.

Earlier this month, Vonn raced for the first time in 10 months after a serious knee injury and a partial re-tear of one of two knee ligaments that were reconstructed.
