WENGEN, Switzerland - Ending a dispiriting four-year victory drought, Carlo Janka won a World Cup super-combined event Friday in front of his home Swiss crowd.The former Olympic, world and overall World Cup champion easily defended his first-run downhill lead in the afternoon slalom to beat Victor Muffat-Jeandat of France by 1.31 seconds.Janka punched the air with his raised right fist on crossing the finish line — a rare show of delight for a skier noted for keeping his emotions in check.Its a very special feeling, said Janka, whose 88-race winless run on the World Cup started when he was one of the biggest stars of Alpine skiing. I could handle the difficult situations better and better in this time.Ivica Kostelic of Croatia was third, trailing 1.38 behind Jankas combined two-run time of 2 minutes, 29.31 seconds.Ted Ligety of the United States was fifth, 1.64 back, one month before defending his world championships gold medal in super-combined at Beaver Creek, Colorado.Broderick Thompson of Whistler, B.C., was 26th while Tyler Werry of Calgary was 27th.Janka put himself into the picture for that Feb. 8 medal race at a venue where he once swept a three-race World Cup weekend meeting.His 10th career World Cup win Friday was his first since a giant slalom at Kranjska Gora, Slovenia, in March 2011 when he was one of few racers who could rival Ligety in the Americans specialist event.Indeed, Janka cited measuring himself against a dominant Ligety — trailing by almost eight seconds in the first run at Alta Badia, Italy, in December 2012 — as a low point in his struggles.Now my confidence and my skiing is on the way back, the 28-year-old Janka said.If his comeback performance surprise some, the venue did not. Jankas only podium finish in his barren spell was a third in this race two years ago. He has also won the classic Wengen downhill and a super-combined in previous seasons here.When I was going through my hard time it still was a good place, said Janka, describing a course circled by the Jungfrau and Eiger mountains as magical.Janka shaped as a star of the sport in a stellar 14-month spell starting at the 2009 world championships in Val dIsere, France, where he won giant slalom gold.He followed up the next season by his weekend hat-trick at Beaver Creek, winning the Wengen downhill, taking gold in GS at the Vancouver Olympics and clinching the first overall World Cup title for a Swiss racer in 18 years.Janka will start among the favourites for the classic Lauberhorn downhill Sunday, along with Olympic champion Matthias Mayer of Austria and World Cup downhill standings leader Kjetil Jansrud of Norway.Both Muffat-Jeandat, who earned his first career podium finish, and Kostelic paid tribute to the victims of terrorist attacks in France last week.Muffat-Jeandat had a Je Suis Charlie message on the front of his helmet, and veteran Kostelic slotted a pen under the strap of his goggles.I draw comics as well, said Kostelic, and I said to myself after those massacres, as soon as I get the chance to support those people in public I will do it.

Johnny Manziel, college footballs most entertaining player with the reputation for pulling off magical plays, was selected with the No. Fake Mets Jerseys . -- LeGarrette Blount wasnt satisfied with three short touchdown runs, not against a team coming off the second greatest comeback in playoff history.Danny Gabbidon says the Wales starting XI for Euro 2016 picks itself, as long as the whole squad remains injury free. Since Chris Colemans side completed their qualifying fixtures last autumn, they have played four friendly matches, three of which have ended in defeat, with one draw.Their most recent defeat was a 3-0 hammering by Sweden on Sunday, with the Stockholm result inflicting on Coleman his heaviest loss since September 2013. Now Wales are set to play their first Group B match at Euro 2016 - against Slovakia in Bordeaux on Saturday - and there has been much debate about what the starting line-up will look like.And speaking on Euro 2016 Verdict, Gabbidon, a former Wales international with 49 caps, picked the team he feels the Wales manager will select in France. Former Wales international Gabbidon made 49 caps from between 2002 and 2014 The team mainly picks itself, he told Sky Sports News HQ. This team is what Chris Coleman [mostly] went with in qualifying, and if everyones fit, hell try and get that team out onto the pitch.Forward Hal Robson-Kanu, a regular fixture in Wales Europpean qualifying campaign, has an ankle injury which raises questions over his fitness.ddddddddddddThe 27-year-old has claimed he will be fit for the opener, but Gabbidon believes Crystal Palace midfielder Jonny Williams would provide adequate cover, as a lack of game-time might be an issue for Robson-Kanu.Robson-Kanu for me hasnt played too much this season, he said. Hes struggling with a little knock at the minute so he might not be ready.Jonny Williams is another option there. He played at the weekend against Sweden, and did very well in the first half, so thats someone who could go into the first team. Gabbidon also believes there is plenty of depth in the centre-back positions to help complete Colemans conventional five-man defence.James Chester has been fantastic in qualifying so its between him and James Collins, who plays on the right-hand side of the centre-backs, he said.But both players have had fantastic seasons, so I dont really mind too much who plays there.But that will be the team, if Chris Coleman can get everyone fit, for the first game against Slovakia.
