LAKE LOUISE, Alta. Kyle Anderson Jersey . - Lake Louise is becoming Kjetil Jansruds hill, and he has two white cowboy hats to prove it.The Norwegian completed a sweep of World Cup races at the Alberta resort with a super-G win Sunday.The 29-year-old also won Saturdays season-opening downhill. Hed never even finished in the medals at Lake Louise prior to his pair of victories.His Norwegian teammate Aksel Lund Svindal was a dominant skier at the hill west of Calgary with three straight super-G wins as well as a downhill gold two years ago.But Svindal is sidelined with an Achilles tendon injury, so it was up to Jansrud to keep the Norwegian anthem playing at Lake Louise.In addition to prize money, vases and flowers, each medallist gets a white cowboy hat.Lake Louise is Aksels hill and for sure it hasnt been mine, but I guess Im turning it into mine which is a good thing, Jansrud said. I never expected a double win though. Thats something you rarely see in alpine skiing. Kind of surprised.Jansrud won Olympic super-G gold and downhill bronze in Sochi, Russia, in February. His time Sunday was one minute 32.02 in clear, cold conditions.Austrias Matthias Mayer, the reigning Olympic downhill champion, was second in 1:32.31. Dominik Paris of Italy was third in 1:32.33.After tying for second in downhill, Manny Osborne-Paradis of North Vancouver, B.C., was the top Canadian in seventh Sunday. Calgarys Jan Hudec, the Olympic bronze medallist in super-G, was ninth.Canada put four men in the top 20 as Dustin Cook of Lac-Sainte-Marie, Que., and Morgan Pridy of Whistler, B.C., were 13th and 17th respectively.Super-G is definitely not my bread and butter, Osborne-Paradis said. Downhill is where my forte is, but Im very happy with a top-10.Jansrud is skiing really well, Paris is skiing really well and theres a couple other guys. Its good to be in that group, to be fighting with the top five and not fighting with the top 20 and top 15.The temperature was close to minus-30, so the majority of the men wore some type of facial protection in Sundays race. The men head to Beaver Creek, Colo., for next weeks downhill, super-G and giant slalom.The women arrive in Lake Louise for downhill races Friday and Saturday and a super-G on Sunday. U.S. ski star Lindsey Vonn is expected to be among them.The 30-year-old hasnt raced much over the last two seasons and wasnt able to defend her Olympic downhill title because of recurring knee injuries and surgeries.Vonn is three wins from matching the record of 62 career World Cup victories held by Annemarie Moser-Proell of Austria. Of Vonns 59 wins, 14 have been in Lake Louise.The super-G race is a hybrid of downhill and giant slalom, so it combines high speeds with sections of turns.Unlike downhill, which allows multiple training runs prior to the race, super-G is a lesson in adaptability. The racers are given only one course inspection before the race.You almost have the same speed as a downhill, but its your first time down the hill at full speed, Hudec explained. Its a huge calculated risk and thats what makes it fun. Its like going to Vegas every weekend.The Austrians didnt have a man in the top eight in downhill, but put four in the top six in super-G.Yesterday, our best position was ninth and 13th and 15th and we werent happy about that, so everybody tried to go better today, Mayer said.Today was better than yesterday. I found the right set up for the snow and the cold conditions. I tried to push harder and it was good.Hudecs race Sunday was eventful as he nearly lost control in the air at one point.I had a few close calls, he said. The more out of control I look, the more Im going for it. I put everything on black and said let it ride.I was eons better today than yesterday. A good feeling on the snow. Im pleased.Cook raced from a start number of 35, which means hes ranked outside the top 30, into the top 15.Its for sure my best World Cup result, Cook said. Its something Ive been looking to do for a long time. I train that fast or faster all the time. Ive been trying to put it into race day and now Ive finally done it, its time to keep going.Erik Guay, who is Canadas most decorated World Cup racer with 22 career medals, didnt race in Lake Louise. Hes delayed the start of his racing season to recover from a pair of off-season knee surgeries.With a prize purse of CDN$118,000 per race, Jansrud earned $70,000 in Lake Louise. He also moved into the overall lead in the World Cup points race, which combines results from downhill, super-G, giant slalom and slalom.Crystal globes are also awarded to season winners in each discipline. Jansrud believes two are realistic goals for him.Super-G and downhill, I fancy my chances there, he said. Now Im leading the overall, the big overall, but thats a totally different story and thats going to be tougher.I dont have my eyes on that one yet. Just going to concentrate on being fast in the downhill and super-G and try to gain some momentum in giant slalom as well.In other results, Jeffrey Frisch of Mont-Tremblant, Que., was 42nd, Ben Thomsen of Invermere, B.C., placed 47th, Calgarys Tyler Werry finished 50th and Broderick Thompson of Whistler was 54th. Danny Green Jersey . Browns advice worked. Irving scored 20 points, including seven in the fourth quarter, and Cleveland defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 88-82 Saturday night. Irving made his first shot of the night on a layup a little over three minutes into the game. Manu Ginobili Jersey . The Italian football federation announced the appointment, three days after new president Carlo Tavecchio was elected. Tavecchio and Conte spoke on the phone early Thursday. http://www.basketballspursshop.com/Womens-Rudy-Gay-Basketball-Jersey/ . Five years ago, Nestor and Zimonjic beat the American twins to win the title. But the Bryans, the worlds top-ranked team, needed 74 minutes to earn the victory Saturday as both Nestor and Zimonjic lost serve in the second set.CLEVELAND -- The Cavaliers have cleared a path for LeBron James to return to Cleveland. Theyve made their moves. Theyre just waiting for him to make his. The Cavs created enough salary-cap space to offer the superstar free agent a maximum contract on Wednesday agreeing to trade guard Jarrett Jack, swingman Sergey Karasev and centre Tyler Zeller in a three-team deal with Brooklyn and Boston, a person familiar with the deals told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because teams are not permitted to discuss trades until the leagues moratorium ends Thursday. The manoeuvring is designed to open room under the salary cap so they can re-sign the Akron-born James, the four-time league MVP and most sought-after player on the market. With open roster spots, Cleveland isnt done. Not long after making the trade with the Celtics and Nets, the Cavs had exploratory discussions with the Minnesota Timberwolves about a possible trade for three-time All-Star Kevin Love -- if James does return to Cleveland, said a person with knowledge of the inquiry. The Timberwolves would be looking for No. 1 overall draft pick Andrew Wiggins to be part of any potential package from Cleveland in order to consider parting with Love if the talks were to become more serious, the person said, speaking with the AP on condition of anonymity because neither team publicly announced the conversation. Whatever the Cavs next move is -- with or without James -- they could package together their other assets, including future first-round picks, to make a run at other All-Star players. Meanwhile, James had his meeting in Las Vegas with Miami president Pat Riley. James, his agent Rich Paul, Riley and Heat executive Andy Elisburg were at the meeting, a person with direct knowledge of the discussions told The AP. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because neither side publicly announced who would be attending the meeting or when it would take place. James has not made a decision and will not make any announcements before Thursday, the person said. With nothing finalized, LeBronathon 2014 will last at least one more day with the NBA --- and fans in Miami and Cleveland -- on edge. Dennis Rodman Jersey. And as he takes fans on another summer thrill ride, James has one more offer to consider in deciding where to play next season: Ohios Cedar Point amusement park is promising to rename one of its roller coasters "King James" if he returns home to play for the Cavs. A park spokesman says its a legitimate offer that originated with the CEO. Cedar Point sent out a tweet with the proposal on Wednesday, telling James, who has visited the park in Sandusky, Ohio, many times, the ball was "in his court." In the three-team trade the Cavs pulled off earlier Wednesday, Cleveland will receive guard Marcus Thornton from the Nets and send him, Zeller and a future first-round pick to the Celtics. Also, the Cavs are trading Jack and Karasev to the Nets. Jack, who signed with Cleveland as a free agent last season, was scheduled to make $6.3 million, Zeller will make $1.6 million and Karasev $1.4 million. In trading those salaries, the Cavs have enough to give James a maximum, $20.7 million contract -- if he decides to sign with Cleveland. James played his first seven seasons with the Cavs before leaving as a free agent in 2010, and its apparent the team is doing everything it can to bring him back. Under NBA rules, teams must abide by a salary cap set by the league. If the combined salaries of the teams roster surpasses the cap, teams are forced to a pay additional taxes. Last season, the salary cap was approximately $59 million, and the league announced Wednesday that it will increase 7.5 per cent to an all-time high of $63.065 million for the 2014-15 season. The tax level -- the point at which a team is penalized for exceeding the salary cap -- for next season has increased by 7.1 per cent to $76.829 million. ESPN first reported details of the three-team trade. Jacks first season with Cleveland didnt go as he or the Cavs had hoped. He signed a four-year, $25 million deal last July after playing in Golden State. The Cavs counted on him being a leader for their young team, but it didnt work out as Cleveland finished 33-49, missed the playoffs and fired coach Mike Brown.
