Jansrud clinches World Cup downhill event at Lake Louise

Norway’s Kjetil Jansrud won the season-opening men’s World Cup downhill event at Lake Louise on Saturday.

In the absence of the injured reigning champion Aksel Lund Svindal, the 29-year-old proved too strong for his opponents and sealed the win in an impressive time of 1 minute 50.2 seconds.

Jansrud, who had already clinched a World Cup Super-G earlier this year in Kvitfjell, finished 0.14 seconds in front of local favourite Manuel Osborne-Paradis and France’s Guillermo Fayed as they shared second place.

Italy’s Dominik Paris produced a solid run but it wasn’t to be as the 2013 World silver medallist eventually had to settle for fourth place ahead of America’s Marco Sullivan.
