Vincent Menard:” Kjetil Jansrud is the new toast of Norway after his Super-G victory in Sochi.

Glasses are raised to Andrea Fischbacher after victory in Switzerland.

And German ski jumper Severin Freund almost leaps with a legend.

All that and more in Gravity, so let’s get the snow on the road.

Winter sports mad Norway has a new hero, Kjetil Jansrud. The super-g gold medalist from Sochi, piled on the victories on home snow in Kvitfjell winning Friday’s World Cup downhill and Sunday’s super-g.
In tricky conditions the Norwegian pulled off his third World Cup win all coming on home snow. The Swiss skier Patrick Kueng came in second, Matthias Mayer of Austria third.

Pre-race favourite Aksel Lund Svindal failed in his attempt to take a top podium spot from his rival and compatriot. Still even without a victory, Svindal claimed the World Cup super-g crown and the downhill. Svindall now leads the overall standings from Austria’s Marcel Hirscher.

Veteren Czech skier Ondrei Bank will want to forget his Sunday on the slopes after he lost control and crashed out injuring his leg.

The cow bells rang out strong for the Swiss women at fortress Crans Montana , but despite a strong home contingent it was the Austrian’s that triumphed in the downhill.

Andrea Fischbacher ended a five-year victory drought to lead home an Austrian 1-2 with Anna Fenninger second.

Sochi gold medalist ski jumper Germany’s Severin Freund almost jumped to the status of legend. After wins in Falun in Sweden and Lahti in Finland, he was going for a hat-trick of wins in Sunday’s Lahti jump to join Sven Hannavald as the only German jumper to win three events on the bounce.

He failed by a mere four points. “

Thanks for watching and see you next week for more slippery sports in Gravity.”
