Kjetil Jansrud Takes Victory in Kvitfjell and the Super-G Globe

The last regular speed weekend came to an end today at Kvitfjell (NOR), with the Super-G on the Olympiabakken course.
Kjetil Jansrud’s domination in this year’s Super-G events continues and claimed the top step on the podium today in Kvitfjell. He crossed the finish line 0.22 seconds ahead of Beat Feuz and 0.33 ahead of Brice Roger.
The local hero Kjetil Jansrud kept his nerves under control and scored a 21st World Cup win, the 7th in front of his home crowd. With this win, he also secured the crystal globe in this discipline. Norwegian teammate Aksel Lund Svindal, failed to finish his run, enabling Jansrud to build a 134-point lead with only the season-ending race in Sweden remaining.
As yesterday in the downhill, Beat Feuz took second place, and a surprise guest ended in third place; Brice Roger grabbed his second career podium coming down with bib 49 in today's Super-G in Kvitfjell.
