Norway's Kjetil Jansrud shocked the favourites in the Olympic super-G on Sunday as US veteran Bode Miller finished in third place.

The 28-year-old Norwegian, who won downhill bronze last week, mastered the challenging course in a time of 1min 18.14sec.

Miller's teammate Andrew Weibrecht, super-G bronze medallist in Vancouver, went one better from four years ago, finishing in second place at 0.30sec. Canada's Jan Hudec was a surprise joint third with Miller at 0.53sec.
