LENZERHEIDE, Switzerland (AP) - Injured Lindsey Vonn wasn't on the mountain, but she still won her sixth straight World Cup downhill title.

Thick fog has forced the cancellation of the race on Wednesday. That allowed Vonn to retain her title, beating Tina Maze of Slovenia by one point.

Vonn's has been sidelined since a season-ending knee injury five weeks ago.

Maze has dominated the season, but lost a historic chance at sweeping the World Cup titles. She only needed to finish in the top 14 to win the title.

Fog also canceled the men's downhill race
