Skiing: Kjus wins amid falls
Saturday 23 January 1999
The Olympic downhill silver medallist is now 69 points behind Hermann Maier, the defending champion, in the overall World Cup standings.
Maier, the double Olympic champion, walked away uninjured from a spectacular spill in the second run.
Maier was luckier than his team-mate Patrick Ortlieb, a former world and Olympic champion, who suffered a career-threatening broken thigh and dislocated hip on Thursday in a crash during training.
In Cortina D' Ampezzo, Switzerland's Catherine Borghi broke the tibia in her left leg yesterday when she crashed in a women's World Cup super- G.
Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
