Jansrud leads downhill training again at Pyeongchang test

JEONGSEON, South Korea (AP) Kjetil Jansrud of Norway led downhill training again Friday at the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics test event.

Jansrud, the winner of last season's season-long World Cup title in downhill, clocked 1 minute, 41.18 seconds for a 0.39-second lead over Peter Fill of Italy.

Dominik Paris of Italy was third, 0.49 behind, with Steven Nyman of the United States fifth, a further hundredth back.

Erik Guay of Canada, the 2011 world champion, was fifth.

Conditions were again perfect - cold, sunny and hard snow.

Jansrud, who took gold in super-G and bronze in downhill at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, also led the opening training session on Thursday.

The downhill race is scheduled for Saturday, with a super-G on Sunday.

This is the first of 28 test events for the next Winter Games.
