Janka wins World Cup super-combined globe

Carlo Janka has earned this season's crystal globe in the men's World Cup super-combined discipline.

The title went to Janka after the final race of the season on Sunday, won by Romed Baumann of Austria with a combined time of 2 minutes, 25.73 seconds.

Julien Lizeroux of France was 0.32 back in second, while Janka and Christof Innerhofer of Italy shared third, at 0.68 behind Baumann.

"I never really focused on winning a World Cup discipline but it's great to take a crystal globe home," said the 22-year-old Janka. "I wasn't nervous before my slalom today, I just wanted to put in a clean run."

Janka overtook Swiss teammate Silvan Zurbriggen who led the discipline standings going into the race but finished 1.47 seconds back in tenth.

Janka has 242 points, 11 more than Zurbriggen.

Janka has claimed three podium places in this World Cup, including two victories in the super-combined and giant slalom.
