BAD KLEINKIRCHHEIM, Austria (Reuters) - Italian Federica Brignone won the women's World Cup Super G race on Saturday, saying she reveled in the tough conditions which forced organizers to switch the program. The organizers postponed the downhill which was supposed to be held on Saturday and brought forward the Super G after heavy rain earlier in the week damaged the course. Most skiers struggled in the conditions, including four-times overall World Cup winner Lindsey Vonn who finished ninth, however Brignone said she relished them. "I did everything I expected and in this Super G you must know what you have to do in the right place. American Mikaela Shiffrin, a slalom specialist who holds a huge lead in the overall World Cup race, did not take part.
