Jansrud, winner of the Super-G gold at last month's Winter Olympics, recorded his first win in Friday's downhill when he shared top spot on the podium with Austrian rival Georg Streitberger. But he was the outright winner in front of his home crowd in Sunday's Super-G race, clocking a time of 1:31.39minutes to take gold. It was 0.26secs faster than Switzerland's Patrick Kueng in second while Matthias Mayer, gold medallist in the downhill in Sochi, was third 0.33secs behind Jansrud. Svindal missed out on the podium by 0.11secs in fourth but it was enough to see him claim this season's Super-G World Cup title for a third straight year to add to the downhill title he took on Friday.
