U.S. women alpine racers made history this weekend in Alberta, Canada, with the first-ever World Cup podium sweep for men or women. Lindsey Vonn won in her second race since returning after being sidelined from the Sochi Olympics by a knee injury. Stacey Cook took second, and Julia Mancuso took third.

Cook is a three-time Olympian and it was her first World Cup podium finish since 2012. Mancuso has the most Olympic medals of any U.S. female skier—four—and it was her first World Cup podium since 2013. Vonn’s win, her 60th, puts her just two World Cup wins behind the record held by retired Austrian Annemarie Moser-Pröll. Vonn was the 2010 Olympic downhill champion and has four World Cup overall championships under her bibs.

Way to go, ladies! Watch Vonn’s winning run below:
