BEAVER CREEK, Colo. Air Jordan 6 Wholesale . - Kjetil Jansrud cant ever remember a run like this, where he didnt make so much as one tiny slipup on a tricky course designed to tax and tease skiers.The Norwegian settled into the perfect line, smoothly glided through the bumpy course and moments after crossing the finish line stuck out both arms as if he were soaring.These days, it sure seems that way. Jansrud extended his World Cup streak to three straight races with a downhill victory Friday.The 29-year-old finished in 1 minute, 40.17 seconds to hold off Beat Feuz by 0.54 seconds after the Swiss skier made a late push. American Steven Nyman was third for his first podium spot in two years.Its as close to a perfect run as I couldve had, said Jansrud, who became the first male skier to win three straight events since Austrias Marcel Hirscher in 2012. Felt solid all the way.Calgarys Jan Hudec finished 17th and Manny Osborne-Paradis of North Vancouver, B.C., was 20th.Jansrud kept the Birds of Prey downhill title in the Norwegian family. Teammate Aksel Lund Svindal couldnt defend his crown after tearing his Achilles tendon playing soccer in October.Jumping out of the start gate, Jansrud was slightly behind Nymans early pace. But then Jansrud took off, finding a way to generate maximum speed, much as he did in Lake Louise, Alberta, last weekend when he swept the two speed races.His competitors are now searching for ways to keep up, same as they did when Svindal was at his best on the slopes.Jansruds on fire, said American Travis Ganong, who finished fifth despite a recent puncture fracture he suffered at the top of his shin in a training mishap. Hes unbeatable.With no Svindal this season, Jansrud has the added pressure of leading the way for the Norwegians.So far, so good, with the country now winning four of the opening five mens events. Henrik Kristoffersen accounted for the other victory — a slalom race in Levi, Finland.Im glad I can perform when Aksels gone, said Jansrud, who earned the gold medal in the super-G and a bronze in the downhill at the Sochi Games last February. Otherwise, the questions would be the other way around. Id have a huge problem explaining why I cant be fast with Aksel gone. But I dont feel like Im stepping out of (his) shadow. Its an individual sport and Im happy for myself.Hes also taken a sizeable lead in the overall standings, holding a 136-point edge over the defending champion Hirscher.Its not my biggest goal of the season, but if I keep my good shape, I hope to compete with him for the overall, said Jansrud, who joked that his long hair was the result of travelling away from home rather than a new fashion statement. Hopefully, for everybody at home its going to be exciting.Nyman found his run super encouraging, returning to the podium for the first time since he won in Val Gardena, Italy, on Dec. 15, 2012. Its been a tumultuous few seasons for him, dealing with back, knee and Achilles tendon injuries. He also slipped to the U.S. squads B team, meaning he has to pay $20,000 out of his own pocket to race this season.Its tough sometimes, said Nyman, whos from Sundance, Utah. When that was placed upon you and knowing Ive won World Cups and been on the podium several times, and ask you to pay $20,000 to do your job? Thats hard.A goal of mine is consistency, he added. Ive always been up and down.Nyman nearly was joined on the podium by Ganong, who had an electric run going, before finishing fifth.I feel really balanced on my skis, Ganong said. Its fun to attack and push hard and see what happens. Its great to see Steven step up and get a podium. We feed off each other.It looked as if Nyman might wind up second, only to be pushed down a spot when Feuz, who started 25th. His career has been hampered in recent seasons because of a balky left knee.The knee will never be 100 per cent again, Feuz said through an interpreter.Thats what makes this podium finish so satisfying for him.The story is almost bigger than I can imagine, Feuz said. Its almost too much. Cheap Jordan 6 For Sale . Radulov scored the lone goal in the shootout, and the Predators edged the Minnesota Wild 2-1 on Tuesday night to reach 100 points for the second time in three seasons and fourth in seven. Air Jordan 6 Online Shop . - The Chicago Bears have agreed to a one-year contract with free-agent centre Brian de la Puente. SOCHI, Russia -- Canadian women have done it again. Marielle Thompson of Whistler, B.C won a gold medal and Kelsey Serwa of Kelowna, B.C., captured a silver medal in womens ski cross Friday at the Sochi Winter Games. The final pitted the four fastest women in qualifying. Thompson, ranked third, took an early lead against the first-ranked Serwa and never let it slip. Both crossed the finish line ahead of bronze medallist Anna Holmund of Sweden. Thompson and Serwa were among the medal favourites entering the event, with Thompson winning two World Cup races this season and Serwa collecting a World Cup win on the same course last year. Georgia Simmerling of West Vancouver, B.C., was eighth in the seeding run and won her oopening heat, but crashed in the quarterfinals and left the course in obvious discomfort.
