VAL DISERE, France -- Norway dominated, Kjetil Jansrud won, Austria struggled. Supply Adidas NMD Shoes .The first downhill of the mens World Cup season on Saturday traced the same path down the sun-soaked Val dIsere course as the super-G one day earlier.Jansrud has gone 2-for-2 in the first speed races with teammate Aksel Lund Svindal defying expectations after a 10-month injury absence to join him again on the podium.Relying on technical skills ahead of pure speed, Jansrud was 0.26 seconds faster than Peter Fill of Italy, the defending World Cup downhill champion, down the 3.4-kilometer (2-mile) Oreiller-Killy course.Its an amazing beginning, said Jansrud, who won the season-long downhill title in 2015. You never know, but I hoped for sure for a start like this.Svindal, who was runner-up on Friday, placed third, trailing 0.33 behind his fellow Norwegian. Only the top three finished in under two minutes.Im very satisfied, said Svindal, who lacked stamina after limited top-level training since rupturing his right ligaments in January. Its a very hard landing (on the jumps) and I took a second before I got my breath.For the second straight day, Norway and Italy filled the podium and the traditionally powerful Austria team was never in contention.The best placed Austrian, in 17th, was Olympic champion Matthias Mayer who came down 1.45 slower than Jansrud.It was a terrible day, Austria team director Hans Pum told The Associated Press. In the last 40 years I cant remember many like this. We have to analyze exactly what has happened.Austrias winless streak in the marquee downhill discipline extended to 13 races since Hannes Reichelt won at Kvitfjell, Norway, in March 2015.Norway has now won eight of those 13 downhills, with Svindal, Jansrud and Aleksander Aamodt Kilde all taking victories for a small but high-class team.Everyone will start screaming in the Austrian media, for sure, said Jansrud, adding he was not surprised at the rival teams result, citing Mayer returning from a back injury and Reichelt slowed by knee pains.We need to have fast Austrians to keep the entertainment coming and the spectators coming, said Jansrud, who took downhill bronze behind Mayer at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.Jansruds win on Saturday was keyed by skiing well through a turning middle section in the shadows where rivals typically lost at least a half-second to him.The lead was threatened by Steven Nyman before the United States racer strayed wide into rough snow midway down. Nyman placed 15th, ending his streak of four straight top-three finishes in downhill.While Jansrud was only 18th fastest at either of the two speed checks, Fill was the only racer to hit 122 kph (76 mph).Im surprised for my performance, said Fill, who took the downhill crystal trophy last season by edging ahead of Svindal, who missed the last five races after crashing at Kitzbuehel, Austria.Austrias slow start is not really my problem, Fill said. They have good skiers. For me, its better that they dont go too fast.Marcel Hirscher, the five-time defending overall World Cup winner, will seek to restore Austrian pride in a giant slalom on Sunday.Val dIsere hosted a World Cup downhill for the first time in 10 seasons.The French resort took over a three-race weekend meeting which was cancelled at Beaver Creek, Colorado, because of lack of snow. Cheap Adidas NMD Online .B. -- The Baie-Comeau Drakkar took over sole possession of first place atop the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Thursday with their sixth straight win. Discount Adidas NMD Shoes 2018 .

Its one Ill cherish now but later in life as well, Selwood said on stage.Parker, Rampe and seven other stars earned All-Australian honours for the first time, including vice-captain Rory Sloane.Dustin Martin, tipped to be Patrick Dangerfields biggest challenger on Brownlow Medal night, was included on the bench alongside fellow debutant Marcus Bontempelli.Melbourne ruckman Max Gawn, West Coast defender Jeremy McGovern, Gold Coast forward Tom Lynch and Greater Western Sydneys Toby Greene were also recognised by selectors for the first time.Ive been doing this three years and it was the most aggressive discussion theres been, AFL boss Gillon McLachlan said of the selection debate.McLachlan chairs a selection panel that also features Kevin Bartlett, Luke Darcy, Mark Evans, Danny Frawley, Glen Jakovich, Cameron Ling, Matthew Richardson and Warren Tredrea.It got a bit heated at times. The last three slots took three hours, McLachlan said during the ceremony.Some blokes wedged themselves in corners and wouldnt move. We had to waterboard them out.The Cats and Crows supplied three players each.Selwood and Dangerfield were joined by teammate Corey Enright who, like Franklinn, made the cut for a sixth time. Cheap Adidas NMD R1 Shoes. nright, who turns 35 later this month, became the third-oldest player to be picked for an official All Australian side.Michael Tuck, who was 37 when selected in 1990, and Malcolm Blight, who was 35 when chosen in 1985, are the only men to have earned the honour at an older age.The Crows representatives were Sloane, defender Daniel Talia and small forward Eddie Betts.North Melbourne were the only finalists who failed to earn a selection.Melbourne, Gold Coast and Richmond were the clubs outside the top eight to supply players - Gawn, Lynch, Martin and Alex Rance.Collingwood captain Scott Pendlebury, Fremantle midfielder Lachie Neale, Hawthorn veteran Sam Mitchell and North Melbourne defender Robbie Tarrant were among the notable names in the preliminary 40-man squad who were overlooked.Ling admitted Neale was extremely unlucky.2016 ALL AUSTRALIAN TEAM:* B: Dane Rampe (Sydney), Alex Rance (Richmond), Jeremy McGovern (West Coast)* HB: Heath Shaw (GWS), Daniel Talia (Adelaide), Corey Enright (Geelong)* W: Dan Hannebery (Sydney), Josh Kennedy (Sydney), Rory Sloane (Adelaide)* HF: Toby Greene (GWS), Lance Franklin (Sydney), Cyril Rioli (Hawthorn)* F: Eddie Betts (Adelaide), Josh Kennedy (West Coast), Tom Lynch (Gold Coast)* R: Max Gawn (Melbourne), Patrick Dangerfield (Geelong), Joel Selwood (Geelong)* I: Marcus Bontempelli (Western Bulldogs), Matthew Boyd (Bulldogs), Dustin Martin (Richmond), Luke Parker (Sydney) Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
