KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — Kjetil Jansrud was in first place in the Olympic super-G on Sunday after the top 30 racers and was on the verge of capturing another gold medal in the discipline for Norway.

The only thing that could derail Jansrud was a stunning finish by one of the remaining 33 lower-ranked skiers.

Jansrud finished in 1 minute, 18.14 seconds and was in prime position to help his country win its fourth straight Olympic title in the event. Starting 29th, Andrew Weibrecht of the United States flew down the choppy course and was second, 0.30 seconds behind Jansrud.

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

Jansrud also won bronze in the downhill.
