Kriechmayr wins, Weirather seals super-G WCup title

Vincent Kriechmayr made it two wins in two days by taking the final World Cup super-G of the season yesterday.

In a shortened race in Are, Sweden, the Austrian finished a narrow 0.04 seconds ahead of Christof Innerhofer, while Aksel Lund Svindal and Thomas Dressen tied for third, 0.08 behind. It was the third career win for Kriechmayr, who tied with teammate Matthias Mayer to win the downhill on Wednesday. His other victory came in a super-G in Beaver Creek, Colorado, in December. Kjetil Jansrud, the Norwegian who had already clinched the season-long discipline title, finished sixth. Jansrud ended the season with an 80-point advantage over Kriechmayr. Svindal was third, 126 points behind. Earlier, Tina Weirather successfully defended her super-G title while Sofia Goggia won the final race of the season. Goggia, the Italian who clinched the downhill title a day earlier, finished 0.32 seconds ahead of Viktoria Rebensburg of Germany. Lindsey Vonn was third. Weirather finished sixth and ended the season with an 86-point advantage over Lara Gut. Anna Veith placed third, 122 points behind.
