Norway's Svindal fastest in final downhill training at Lake Louise; Bode Miller is 3rd

LAKE LOUISE, Alta. - Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway was fastest in the final training run for a World Cup downhill at Lake Louise.

Svindal was a double winner in Lake Louise last year with victories in the downhill and super-G.

The downhill course was shortened for Friday's training because of poor visibility at the top of the mountain.

Svindal's time was 1 minute 24.33 seconds. Georg Streitberger of Austria was second in 1:24.47 and Bode Miller was third in 1:24.78.

Saturday's race is the first men's downhill of this World Cup season.
