Jansrud wins Olympic super-G, with Weibrecht 2nd

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) - Kjetil Jansrud won the fourth straight Olympic super-G gold medal for Norway on Sunday.

Jansrud finished the choppy course in 1 minute, 18.14 seconds to help his country maintain its dominance in the Olympic event. Starting 29th, Andrew Weibrecht of the United States flew down the hill and wound up second, 0.30 seconds behind.

American teammate Bode Miller and Jan Hudec of Canada tied for third. Miller is the oldest Alpine skier to medal at 36.

This was Miller's sixth Olympic medal, moving him two behind the all-time Alpine leader Kjetil Andre Aamodt.

Norway has long ruled this Olympic discipline, with Aamodt winning in 2002 and '06, and Aksel Lund Svindal in 2010. Svindal struggled on Sunday and finished seventh place.
