Norwegian ski racer Aksel Lund Svindal has completed a perfect weekend at the Lake Louise Winterstart World Cup, winning the downhill and super-G races and topping the leaderboard after four events. “Most racers, including myself, you don’t have the chance to win World Cups every day and when you feel you have a chance, you have to get after it,” Svindal said on Sunday. “Yesterday and today, I felt ‘This is a race I can win,’ and you’ve got to try and take advantage of those opportunities.” The 29-year-old two-time overall champion has bounced back from a bad crash in 2007 that almost ended his career.
