Reichelt, Paris share downhill victory in Bormio

Hannes Reichelt of Austria and Dominik Paris of Italy shared the victory in an extremely close downhill Saturday that had the top four finishers separated by a mere two hundredths of a second.
Paris took the early lead by clocking 1 minute, 58.62 seconds for his first career win. Reichelt then matched him to give Austria its first speed win of the season.
Overall World Cup leader Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway finished third, 0.01 seconds behind _ the smallest possible margin. Klaus Kroell of Austria was fourth, missing out on a podium finish despite being just 0.02 behind the winners.
The next stop on the circuit is a special city event in Munich on New Year's Day for select athletes. Speed specialists have a break until the classic races in Wengen, Switzerland, and Kitzbuehel, Austria, in mid-January.
