Svindal wins World Cup super-G title, Feuz crashes



SCHLADMING, Austria (AP) — Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway won the World Cup super-G title for a third time Thursday, and overall leader Beat Feuz of Switzerland crashed and failed to secure the overall championship.

Feuz had to place first or second to earn an insurmountable lead in the standings with two races left but lost his balance and slid off the course.

World champion Christof Innerhofer of Italy won the final super-G of the season ahead of Alexis Pinturault of France and Marcel Hirscher of Austria, who now trails Feuz by 75 points.

Olympic super-G champion Svindal finished 16th, enough to protect his lead over main rival Didier Cuche of Switzerland, who finished ninth.
