KVITFJELL, Norway (AP) Kjetil Jansrud won a men's World Cup super-G on Sunday, while fellow Norwegian Aleksander Aamodt Kilde took the lead in the discipline standings.

With only the season-ending race on Thursday remaining, Kilde has 335 points, followed by Norwegian teammate Aksel Lund Svindal on 310, Vincent Kriechmayr of Austria on 298, and Jansrud on 295. Svindal ended his season after knee surgery in January and is not a contender for the title.

Jansrud won Sunday's race by a 0.17-second margin over Kriechmayr, and 0.32 in front of Dominik Paris of Italy, who won the downhill here on Saturday. Kilde was 0.47 back in fourth.

It was Jansrud's 14th career win and sixth in super-G. The last five super-G races on Norwegian soil have all been won by the home nation.
