American Ted Ligety shocked the field to win the men's world super-G title on Wednesday.

Ligety clocked 1min 23.96sec down the 1.8km-long Planai course, with late French call-up Gauthier De Tessieres taking silver at 0.20sec, and pre-race favourite and Olympic champion Aksel Lund Svindal claiming bronze, a further 0.02sec adrift.
