Kjetil Jansrud maintained Norway's stranglehold on the men's super-G by winning gold at the Sochi Games on Sunday, while 36-year-old American Bode Miller shared a bronze to become the oldest Olympic Alpine skiing medallist.

American Andrew Weibrecht, starting 29th, went one better than his third-place finish in Vancouver by winning silver, 0.30 seconds behind Jansrud.

Canada's Jan Hudec finished with the exact same time as Miller, 0.53 slower than Jansrud, in the second Alpine race of the Games to see two skiers share a medal. The women's downhill saw a tie for gold on Wednesday.

Jansrud's success was Norway's fourth in a row in the discipline dating back to 2002.
