SCHLADMING, Austria (AP) — Tina Maze of Slovenia provisionally won the super-G at the world championships on Tuesday, and Lindsey Vonn was hospitalized after a crash.

Vonn lost balance on her right leg while landing after a jump and appeared to have injured her right knee.

Maze won the race in 1 minute, 35.39 seconds, beating Lara Gut of Switzerland by 0.38. Julia Mancuso of the United States was 0.52 behind in third.

Some lower-ranked racers were still to start.

The race had been delayed by 3½ hours because of fog hanging over the course.

The men's super-G is scheduled for Wednesday.
