LAKE LOUISE, Alta. - Lake Louise is becoming Kjetil Jansruds hill, and he has two white cowboy hats to prove it.The Norwegian completed a sweep of World Cup races at the Alberta resort with a super-G win Sunday.The 29-year-old also won Saturdays season-opening downhill. Hed never even finished in the medals at Lake Louise prior to his pair of victories.His Norwegian teammate Aksel Lund Svindal was a dominant skier at the hill west of Calgary with three straight super-G wins as well as a downhill gold two years ago.But Svindal is sidelined with an Achilles tendon injury, so it was up to Jansrud to keep the Norwegian anthem playing at Lake Louise.In addition to prize money, vases and flowers, each medallist gets a white cowboy hat.Lake Louise is Aksels hill and for sure it hasnt been mine, but I guess Im turning it into mine which is a good thing, Jansrud said. I never expected a double win though. Thats something you rarely see in alpine skiing. Kind of surprised.Jansrud won Olympic super-G gold and downhill bronze in Sochi, Russia, in February. His time Sunday was one minute 32.02 in clear, cold conditions.Austrias Matthias Mayer, the reigning Olympic downhill champion, was second in 1:32.31. Dominik Paris of Italy was third in 1:32.33.After tying for second in downhill, Manny Osborne-Paradis of North Vancouver, B.C., was the top Canadian in seventh Sunday. Calgarys Jan Hudec, the Olympic bronze medallist in super-G, was ninth.Canada put four men in the top 20 as Dustin Cook of Lac-Sainte-Marie, Que., and Morgan Pridy of Whistler, B.C., were 13th and 17th respectively.Super-G is definitely not my bread and butter, Osborne-Paradis said. Downhill is where my forte is, but Im very happy with a top-10.Jansrud is skiing really well, Paris is skiing really well and theres a couple other guys. Its good to be in that group, to be fighting with the top five and not fighting with the top 20 and top 15.The temperature was close to minus-30, so the majority of the men wore some type of facial protection in Sundays race. The men head to Beaver Creek, Colo., for next weeks downhill, super-G and giant slalom.The women arrive in Lake Louise for downhill races Friday and Saturday and a super-G on Sunday. U.S. ski star Lindsey Vonn is expected to be among them.The 30-year-old hasnt raced much over the last two seasons and wasnt able to defend her Olympic downhill title because of recurring knee injuries and surgeries.Vonn is three wins from matching the record of 62 career World Cup victories held by Annemarie Moser-Proell of Austria. Of Vonns 59 wins, 14 have been in Lake Louise.The super-G race is a hybrid of downhill and giant slalom, so it combines high speeds with sections of turns.Unlike downhill, which allows multiple training runs prior to the race, super-G is a lesson in adaptability. The racers are given only one course inspection before the race.You almost have the same speed as a downhill, but its your first time down the hill at full speed, Hudec explained. Its a huge calculated risk and thats what makes it fun. Its like going to Vegas every weekend.The Austrians didnt have a man in the top eight in downhill, but put four in the top six in super-G.Yesterday, our best position was ninth and 13th and 15th and we werent happy about that, so everybody tried to go better today, Mayer said.Today was better than yesterday. I found the right set up for the snow and the cold conditions. I tried to push harder and it was good.Hudecs race Sunday was eventful as he nearly lost control in the air at one point.I had a few close calls, he said. The more out of control I look, the more Im going for it. I put everything on black and said let it ride.I was eons better today than yesterday. A good feeling on the snow. Im pleased.Cook raced from a start number of 35, which means hes ranked outside the top 30, into the top 15.Its for sure my best World Cup result, Cook said. Its something Ive been looking to do for a long time. I train that fast or faster all the time. Ive been trying to put it into race day and now Ive finally done it, its time to keep going.Erik Guay, who is Canadas most decorated World Cup racer with 22 career medals, didnt race in Lake Louise. Hes delayed the start of his racing season to recover from a pair of off-season knee surgeries.With a prize purse of CDN$118,000 per race, Jansrud earned $70,000 in Lake Louise. He also moved into the overall lead in the World Cup points race, which combines results from downhill, super-G, giant slalom and slalom.Crystal globes are also awarded to season winners in each discipline. Jansrud believes two are realistic goals for him.Super-G and downhill, I fancy my chances there, he said. Now Im leading the overall, the big overall, but thats a totally different story and thats going to be tougher.I dont have my eyes on that one yet. Just going to concentrate on being fast in the downhill and super-G and try to gain some momentum in giant slalom as well.In other results, Jeffrey Frisch of Mont-Tremblant, Que., was 42nd, Ben Thomsen of Invermere, B.C., placed 47th, Calgarys Tyler Werry finished 50th and Broderick Thompson of Whistler was 54th.

Duhamel, from Lively, Ont., and Radford, from Balmertown, Ont., were second with 77.01 points, just behind Olympic bronze medallists Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy of Germany. The four-time world champs lead at 79. Discount Baseball Jerseys . Casey Janssen was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday due to a strain in his left abdominal area and lower back. http://www.cheapmlbjerseysauthenticchina.com/. This is Lowry’s third time winning the award in his career. He won the award last season and as a member of the Houston Rockets in 2011. Cheap MLB Jerseys Store . The win puts the final playoff berth in Group A in question. If the Czechs beat Slovakia on Tuesday, they will go through. If they lose, Germany will get the last quarter-final berth. Nike MLB Jerseys From China . The third-seeded Bouchard, from Westmount, Que., was coming off a semifinal appearance at the French Open. She took the opening set before the unseeded American came back for the 2-6, 6-3, 6-3 victory.WASHINGTON -- LeBron James only visible significant role was that of postgame heckler, interrupting Michael Beasleys interview amid a loose, upbeat locker room that normally wouldnt jibe with a 21-point loss -- or throwing in a towel in the race for a No. 1 seed. James and Chris Bosh took the night off Monday, and the Heat were beaten 114-93 by the Washington Wizards in a no-contest game that guaranteed the Eastern Conferences top seed for the Indiana Pacers. So, no disappointment at all? "There would be no disappointment," said Dwyane Wade, who played because he needed some minutes after his recent nine-game layoff with a hamstring injury. "When the playoffs start, we have a new season and we will be looking forward to it." So the Pacers are locked in to a first-round series against the eighth-seeded Atlanta Hawks, while the two-time defending champion Heat get the No. 2 seed and either the Wizards or the Charlotte Bobcats. Miami began the day still in contention for the top spot, but they would have needed to win their last two games and have Indiana lose to Orlando on Wednesday because the Pacers hold the head-to-head tiebreaker. Figuring it would be better to be fresh for the post-season, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra sat two of his Big Three, saying they were dealing with "minor ailments" from "the residual of a long season." "It was out of our control. Those guys put in a lot of mileage," Spoelstra said. "Our schedule was fairly extreme down the stretch. Ive never been a part of a group thats played that many games in that few of days down the stretch. Thats not an excuse, but we want to just make sure our guys are sharp and feeling healthy." James has made it part of his annual routine to rest before the playoffs. He missed the final game in 2011 and sat out the last two in both 2012 and 2013. Trevor Ariza scored 25 points to lead the Wizards, who shot 59 per cent and made 14 3-pointers and remain one game ahead of the Bobcats in the race for the No.dddddddddddd 6 seed. Washington has made it a point to avoid finishing seventh to keep from having to face the Heat in the first round -- knowing full well the cast of characters will be different than it was Monday night. "We played against a totally different Miami Heat today than usual," Wizards centre Marcin Gortat said. "Nothing to be excited about. ... It was more like a scrimmage game than a big battle." The Heat went with their 20th starting lineup of this season and trailed by as many as 36 in the second half. Beasley finished with 18 points, Toney Douglas had 14, and Wade scored nine in 18 minutes. Miami has lost four of five and is just 11-13 since March 4, including 3-9 on the road. Gortat had 10 points and 13 rebounds, and John Wall added 13 assists for the Wizards, who have seemingly escaped their 3-point shooting slump. After going 6 for 50 from long range over a three-game span, theyve since made 22 of 51 in their last two games. Ariza, whose shooting was hampered by a bout with the flu, made five of eight 3-pointers Monday night. Also, Nene, who sat out the Wizards previous game after feeling some stiffness in his recently sprained left knee, looked more like his energetic old self as he scored 18 points off the bench. Andre Miller supplied the games biggest highlight, making an overhand paint-to-paint pass to Bradley Beal that would make an NFL quarterback jealous. Beal caught the ball in stride and made the layup in one fluid motion while drawing a foul to set up a three-point play. "It was a post route," Beal said. "The safety bit on a ball fake, so I was able to beat the corner and I got free for a touchdown. Hopefully the Redskins will pick me up." NOTES: The Heat were also without C Greg Oden, who did not make the trip to D.C. because of a stomach virus. ... The Wizards sold out for the fourth time this season.
