The press celebrated Kjetil Jansrud winning his fourth World Cup race of the season with the Super-G at Val Gardena/Gröden. His win "cements his spot in the overall standings with 592 points ahead of Marcel Hirscher." says Sportsbeat, adding that "the absence of his injured compatriot, Aksel Lund Svindal, had increased the pressure and responsibility to get a result."
And Sportal also wrote that Jansrud lead in the overall standings “could soon change with Herscher set to contest in the upcoming giant slalom slalom races in Alta Badia and Madonna di Campiglio.” Jansrud will be celebrating Christmas with his parents close to Lillehammer before returning to Italy for the downhill at Santa Caterina. AP sports writer Andrew Dampf reminds readers also that Nyman didn’t finish the race as did Ted Ligety “who will be aiming for his third career win on the Gran Risa course in Sunday's giant slalom”.
