Norwegian Kjetil Jansrud won the first super-G of the Alpine skiing World Cup season on Sunday when he won the race at the Canadian resort of Lake Louise.

Jansrud achieved his twenty-second World Cup victory and twelfth in the super-G category, where he won the crystal globe in 2015, 2017 and 2018.

The skier from Stavanger,who was the Olympic champion in Sochi in 2014, won in Lake Louise with a time of 1:33.52, 14 hundredths ahead of the Austrian Vincent Kriechmayr and 21 hundredths ahead of the Swiss Mauro Caviezel.

After this race, Kriechmayr is in front in the general standings of the World Cup with 130 points, ten more than Jansrud and twelve ahead of Austrian Max Franz, who won the downhill on Saturday.

The men’s World Cup now travels to Beaver Creek, USA, where a giant slalom, a downhill and a super-G are scheduled from Nov. 30 to Dec. 2.
