Italian Dominik Paris won for a second day in a row at Kvitfjell when he took the World Cup Super-G on Sunday.

Paris, who won the downhill on Saturday, recorded a time of 1 minute 29.20 seconds to beat Norwegian Kjetil Jansrud by 0.43sec and Swiss Beat Feuz by 0.60.

First place lifted Paris to the top of the Super-G World Cup standings.

Under a cloudy sky, Paris was fastest from the start and arrived at the finish grinning as he took his fifth World Cup victory of the season. That total includes two doubles: at Bormio in his home mountains in December and now in Norway.

Downhill world champion Norwegian Kjetil Jansrud, disappointing in the downhill on Saturday, rebounded in front of his home fans to take second place.
