LAKE LOUISE, Alberta (AP) Norway's Kjetil Jansrud won the super-G on Sunday for his second World Cup victory in two days.
The Olympic super-G champion finished in 1 minute 32.02 seconds. On Saturday, he won the season-opening downhill.
"I never expected a double win," Jansrud said. "That's something you rarely see in alpine skiing. Kind of surprised."
Matthias Mayer of Austria was second in 1:32.31 and Dominik Paris of Italy was third in 1:32.33.
"Yesterday, our best position was ninth and 13th and 15th and we weren't happy about that, so everybody tried to go better today," Mayer said. "Today was better than yesterday. I found the right set up for the snow and the cold conditions. I tried to push harder and it was good."
Andrew Weibrecht of Lake Placid, New York, was the top American, finishing 20th in 1:33.42.
Travis Ganong of Squaw Valley, California, was 21st in 1:33.45, Jared Goldberg of Holladay, Utah, was 25th in 1:33.62, and Steven Nyman of Sundance, Utah, was 29th in 1:33.78.
