Beauport, Quebec, Feb. 22 (AP)–Austria’s Klaus Kroell won the men’s super-G Tuesday for his second medal at the World Junior Championships.

Kroell, second Monday in the downhill, finished in 1 minute, 15.69 seconds as Austrians won four of six medals at the Mont Ste. Anne Ski Area.

Germany’s Martin Kraus finished second in 1:16.13, and Austria’s Hammes Reischelt was third in 1:16.51.

Marco Sullivan of Tahoe City, Calif., was the top American with a sixth-place finish. A month ago, Sullivan broke his left shoulder, strained his left knee and suffered a concussion in a training crash in Austria.

Austria’s Katrin Wilhelm won the women’s race in 1:18.79, just .05 ahead of teammate Ingrid Rumpfhuber. Sweden’s Anja Paerson, in her second year on the World Cup tour, was third in 1:18.99.

The highest American finisher was 15-year-old Julia Mancuso, of Tahoe City, Calif., who was fourth with a time of 1:19.31.
