Double Olympic medallist Lindsey Vonn of the United States has crashed out of the women's giant slalom at the Vancouver winter games.

Vonn, who has won downhill gold and super-G bronze on the slopes of Whistler, led the field at the third intermediary time by 0.35 seconds, but misjudged a gate, lost her balance and crashed off the course.

The Austrian Elisabeth Goergl leads after the first run.
