Austria continued its reign of dominance in Olympic super-G on Saturday. A total of 24 medals have been handed out since the event was added to the Winter Olympics in 1988, and the Austrians have now won eight of those medals after securing gold and bronze in Sochi.

Anna Fenninger took the gold with a time of 1:25.52, nosing ahead of silver medalist Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany by 0.55 seconds. Fenninger's country-mate, Nicole Hosp, was just 0.66 seconds out of first and 0.11 seconds out of silver, earning the bronze.

The United States' Julia Mancuso took eighth place in the event, 1.52 seconds behind Fenninger. Mancuso, who has a bronze medal in women's super combined slalom, told NBC Olympics that she was hesitant on the course after watching several skiers struggle before her start. Seven of the first eight bibs on the course did not finish, thanks in part to soft snow.

The gold was Fenninger's first medal at this year's Olympics. She finished fourth in the women's super combined downhill. Hoefl-Riesch and Hosp both added their second medals in Sochi. Hoefl-Riesch won the super combined slalom, beating Hosp who took silver in the event.

Austria now has seven total medals at the 2014 Winter Olympics. Germany has 12, putting them in a tie for the second-most behind the United States and Norway.
