Pinturault wins final super-G as Svindal's title hopes suffer a blow

Frenchman Alexis Pinturault finished the season in style by winning the men’s super-g race at World Cup finals in Lenzerheide, Switzerland.

Pinturault, who started 26th, crossed over to win his third race of the season with a winning margin of 0.56 seconds over teammate Thomas Mermillod Blondin.

American Bode Miller rounded out the podium one hundredths of a second further adrift.

World Cup leader Aksel Lund Svindal of Sweden picked up the season-long title in the discipline, but his 16th place earned him zero points.

Austrian Marcel Hirscher – 19 points behind in the standings – is now in pole position to win the overall season title with only his favoured giant slalom and slalom races remaining.
