ST. MORITZ, Switzerland (AP) Aleksander Aamodt Kilde won the season-long super-G title on Thursday after two of his challengers did not finish in the last race of the season at the World Cup finals.

Five men were in contention for the crystal globe but Kilde finished second, 0.10 seconds behind Beat Feuz to remain top of the standings.

Kjetil Jansrud was third, with the same time as his Norwegian teammate.

Kilde had 335 points heading into St. Moritz, followed by injured teammate Aksel Lund Svindal on 310, Vincent Kriechmayr of Austria on 298, and Jansrud on 295.

With a win worth 100 points, Andrew Weibrecht of the United States (91 points behind) and Carlo Janka of Switzerland (92) were also in with a mathematical chance.

However, Kriechmayr and Weibrecht missed a gate on the tricky Corviglia course.
