Svindal wins Lake Louise World Cup SG

Svindal wins Lake Louise World Cup SG

It was the last day of racing for the men in Lake Louise, Alberta (Canada) and once again the excitement ran high among the crowd. On a Super G course which was nearly as fast as Saturday’s downhill due to the relatively straight course set by Austrian coach Burkhard Schaffer, skiers pushed hard to find the perfect line and take home a victory.

Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway won the men’s World Cup Super G on Sunday. It was the third straight Super G win for Svindal in Lake Louise after victories in 2012 and 2011. Svindal notched his 22nd World Cup victory, surpassing Kjetil Andre Aamodt’s record.

Svindal finished with a time of 1:28:53 ahead of two Austrians, Matthias Mayer of Austria in second place with a time of 1:28:77 and Georg Streitberger in third in 1:28:91.
