Matthias Mayer of Austria Wins Gold in Men's Super-G

Defending champion Kjetil Jansrud of Norway was third, 0.18 behind Mayer. It's Jansrud's fifth career Olympic medal after getting downhill silver

Matthias Mayer of Austria has won the Olympic men's super-G, breaking Norway's 16-year grip on the title.

Mayer won the speed race by 0.13 seconds ahead of Beat Feuz of Switzerland, who added the silver medal to his bronze from downhill on Thursday.

Defending champion Kjetil Jansrud of Norway was third, 0.18 behind Mayer. It's Jansrud's fifth career Olympic medal after getting downhill silver.

Norway had won the past four Olympic men's super-G races, since the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics.

Aksel Lund Svindal, the 2010 Olympic champion in super-G, placed fifth the day after taking Mayer's downhill title.

It's been an interesting week for Mayer. He crashed into a course-side television cameraman Tuesday in the slalom leg of the combined event.
