LAKE LOUISE, Alta. - Marion Rolland of France was fastest in training for the second straight day at the Lake Louise Winterstart World Cup on Thursday.
Daniela Merighetti of Italy was second and Anna Fenninger of Austria was third.
American ski star Lindsey Vonn, who posted the fastest time in the first training run, did not ski Thursday.
Her teammate Stacey Cook said Vonn did not feel well in the morning.
"I had breakfast with her this morning and she seemed cheery and her normal self, so somewhere between breakfast and here I guess she wasn't feeling well," Cook said. "She'll be ready for tomorrow, I know it. She'll make all of us look bad again."
The first of two women's downhills at Lake Louise is scheduled for Friday. The women will also race super-G on Sunday.
