Aksel Lund Svindal wins gold for Norway in men's Downhill
Norway's Aksel Lund Svindal claimed his second Olympic gold medal with victory in the men's Downhill on Thursday in PyeongChang.
Svindal, 35, was seventh out the gate and crossed the line with the fastest time of one minute and 40.25 seconds.
Compatriot Kjetil Jansrud finished second, earning Norway the first one-two in the event in 30 years.

Svindal, a five-time World Champion, was slow out of the gates but his speed picked up on the bottom half of the course to post the winning time.
He nervously watched on as his close friend Jansrud produced a storming run of his own, but the 32-year-old was two tenths of a second short of snatching the top prize.
Svindal's Downhill success is the first time Norway have won gold in the event since 1948.
