Dominik Paris completes the super-G and downhill double in Kvitfjell, Norway.

Dominik Paris added to Saturday’s downhill victory by beating Norway’s Kjetil Jansrud and Swiss Beat Feuz in the super-G. Here is all you need to know:

–  Paris, 29, clocked a best time of one minute 29.20 seconds. Jansrud finished 0.43 behind with Feuz 0.60 off the pace.

–  It is the Italian’s third victory in the Norwegian resort, where he prevailed for the first time in the 2016 downhill.

–  He takes over Vincent Kriechmayr in the super-G World Cup standings.

–  Paris, who now has five World Cup wins to his name this season and snatched a career’s 14th, has 330 points to Kriechmayr’s 286 points after the Austrian finished fourth.

–  He remains fourth overall in the FIS World Cup standings on 750 points but is edging closer to third-placed Henrik Kristoffersen of Norway, who is on 808 points.

–  Austrian Marcel Hirscher leads with 1408 points.

–  It was not a perfect performance from Paris, but the Merano-born skier had too much power for the rest of the field.

–  The start was delayed by half an hour because of snow falls.
