Kline secures second podium finish of the season


Kline finished in one minute, 30.13 seconds, 0.24 seconds behind Aleksander Aamodt Kilde of Norway. The Austrian Marcel Hirscher came in third.

The Maribor native, who turns 25 on 9 March, has emerged as the unlikely flag bearer for the Slovenian men's team this season.

A former youth world champion, Kline struggled with the transition from junior to top-level competition.

He had missed Olympic season 2013/2014 due to a bad knee injury that he attributes to excessive training.

But he told Delo in a recent interview that he was now more mature, noting that many top downhillers peak after 25.

Another Slovenian, Klemen Kosi, came in 10th.
