Aksel Lund Svindal wins FIS World Cup downhill title

Aksel Lund Svindal won his first FIS World Cup downhill title on Wednesday without even racing. Fog forced the cancellation of the final race of the season in Lenzerheide (SUI), enabling the Norwegian to maintain his 58-point lead over Klaus Kroell (AUT).
However, the cancelled race prevents the Longines Ambassador of Elegance from scoring points to catch up with FIS overall standings leader Marcel Hirscher (AUT).
