Jansrud clinches super G opener in Val d'Isere

Norway’s Kjetil Jansrud kept his composure to clinch the opening super G race of the Alpine Skiing World Cup season in Val d’Isere on Friday.

The 31-year-old Olympic champion dominated his opponents from the outset and completed the course in an impressive time of 1 minute and 21.66 seconds, en route to his 15th World Cup success.

After ten months out due to a serious knee injury, Aksel Lund Svindal showed he has not lost any of his speed as he came home second, 0.17 seconds slower than fellow countryman Jansrud.

Dominik Paris of Italy was third, 0.41 adrift while Switzerland’s Carlo Janka and Bostjan Kline of Slovenia finished fourth and fifth respectively.
