    Background: Austria's Franz Klammer won the Hahnenkamm Men's World ski Cup Classic Downhill at Kitzbuehel, Austria, on Saturday (18 January) with a record time of two minutes, 3.22 seconds.

    Only one hundredth of a second slower was Gustav Thoeni of Italy, who came second in two minutes, 3.23 seconds. Warner Grissman of Austria was third in two minutes, 3.30 seconds.

    Besides breaking the existing record of two minutes, 3.29 seconds set by Switzerland's Roland Collombin, Klammer equalled the record of five consecutive World Cup Downhill victories held for eight years by France's Jean-Claude Killy. Klammer, who is 20, said he was now aiming at a Downhill victory in Innsbruck that would break Killy's record.

    His victory on Saturday raised his total of downhill points to 125 -- compared with 81 for the second-place Grissman -- and lifted him back to the top of the World Cup standings.
