Kjetil Jansrud won the fourth straight Olympic super-G gold medal for Norway on Sunday.

Starting 29th, Andrew Weibrecht of the United States flew down the hill and wound up second, 0.30 seconds behind.

American teammate Bode Miller and Jan Hudec of Canada tied for third. Miller is the oldest Alpine skier to medal at 36. It’s his 6th olympic medal.

Norway has long ruled this Olympic discipline, winning gold in 2002, 2006 and 2010.

In other competition, Lindsey Jacobellis of the U.S. failed to make it to the medal round after crashing near the end of the slushy course while leading a semifinal race in women’s snowboardcross.

Eva Samkova of the Czech Republic dominated the final, posting three wire-to-wire victories. Dominique Maltais of Canada earned her second Olympic medal by grabbing silver. Chloe Trespeuch of France earned bronze.
