Maiden win for Kueng


Maiden win for Kueng


Switzerland’s Patrick Kueng produced yet another flawless run to win the Beaver Creek super-G on Saturday.

The 29-year-old dominated his opponents from the outset and completed the course in a time of 1 minute and 21.73 seconds to secure the title ahead of Austrian Otmar Striedinger.

This win sees Kueng become the first Swiss skier to claim a World Cup speed event since March 2012.

Hannes Reichelt and Italy’s Peter Fill, who finished second and third in Friday’s downhill, shared third place.
