BORMIO, Italy (AP) — Italy’s Dominik Paris made it two World Cup victories in two days on home snow by winning a men’s super-G by the slimmest of margins on Saturday.
Paris, who won a downhill on Friday, beat Olympic champion Matthias Mayer of Austria by 0.01 seconds for a record fourth victory on the Stelvio course, eclipsing Austrian greats Hermann Maier and Michael Walchhofer.
“It’s been two fantastic days,” Paris said. “I don’t have the words to describe it.”
Aleksander Aamodt Kilde of Norway finished third, 0.46 behind.
Paris trailed Mayer by 0.33 at the final checkpoint but used his massive thighs to absorb all of the rolls and bumps over the final gates and maintain a smoother line.
