Lindsey Vonn is seeking to challenge the men's downhill skiers in a World Cup race next month, though her wish still needs the support of the United States team and Alpine skiing's governing body.

The United States ski federation said that it has not yet had a "formal discussion" about the possibility of the women's Olympic downhill champion challenging the men on 24 November in Lake Louise, Alberta.
