Dominik Paris made up for missing out on the 2018-19 Alpine Ski World Cup downhill title on Wednesday by clinching his first super-G crystal globe in Andorra.

The 29-year-old Italian, who was pipped to the post by Switzerland's Beat Feuz in the downhill standings, returned to the slopes of Soldeu a day later and rounded off a dominant campaign in the super-G discipline.

By topping the podium in 1:20.42 ahead of Switzerland's Mauro Caviezel (1:20.57) and Austria's Vincent Kriechmayr (1:20.86), Paris took the title by a an 84-point margin, with Kriechmayr and Caviezel second and third overall respectively.

"I was, two or three times, very close to [taking] this but I am so happy.

"I tried to focus on the course and on speed but it was hard. I was more nervous than normal but I tried to thrash it out and everything on the limit, trying to win the race.

" "I'm so happy.""
