Kjetil Jansrud put himself in the driving seat in the Winter Olympics super combined event, topping the leaderboard after the downhill stage at the Rosa Khutor Alpine Center.

The Norwegian completed the course in a time of one minute 53.24 seconds, 0.14 secs quicker than nearest challenger Czech Ondrej Bank with Olympic downhill champion Matthias Mayer lying third, 0.37secs down on the leader.

Jansrud was one of three Norwegians in the top six, along with Aleksander Aamodt Kilde and the highly-fancied Aksel Lund Svindal, while Croatia's Ivica Kostelic - whose father Ante set the course for the upcoming slalom stage - was seventh in the standings.

United States star Bode Miller lay 12th after the downhill, almost two seconds behind Jansrud, with the slalom to come later on Friday.
