Paris wins super-G for back-to-back victories in Bormio
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."
