Austria's Matthias Mayer made up for the disappointment of his injury-hampered downhill title defense at the Pyeongchang Olympics by skiing an error-free run to win the men's super-G Friday, ending 16 years of Norwegian dominance of the event.It was a second super-G medal for the Mayer family after Matthias' father Helmut won a silver in the inaugural running of the event at Calgary in 1988 and brought the title back to Austria two decades after Hermann Maier's win in Nagano.Swiss Beat Feuz finished third behind Svindal and Kjetil Jansrud in Thursday's downhill but produced a beautifully controlled run of 1:24.57 straight after Mayer to claim silver 0.13 seconds behind the Austrian.
