Skiing: Unfancied Schieder second on Streif

Pipped by Kriechmayr on iconic Kitzbuehel course

(ANSA) - ROME, JAN 20 - Italy's talented but unfancied 27-year-old journeyman skier Florian Schieder came second in the downhill Friday on the mythical Streif at Kitzbuehel.
    Alto Adige native Schieder came in just 23 hundredths of a second behind the winner, Austria's Vincent Kriechmayr, who notched his 15th career victory and third this season after Val Gardena and Bormio.
    Swiss skier Niels Hintermann was third, while Italian No 1 Dominik Paris came joint fifth. (ANSA).
