Less than a month after clinching gold in Super-G at the recent FIS Worlds organized at Are, in Sweden, Italy’s Dominik Paris achieved another impressive performance at Kvitfjell, winning his second race within twenty-four hours beating by nearly half a second Norway’s favorite Kjetil Jansrud. It was his fifth season win on the World Cup tour – his fourteenth in total in his career. Photo Scanpix NTB.
