KVITFJELL, Norway (AP) - With the World Cup season nearly over, Travis Ganong is just getting started.

The American earned the first podium of his career on Friday, finishing only .12 seconds behind co-winners Kjetil Jansrud Georg Streitberger in a World Cup downhill.

With another downhill scheduled for Saturday, the 25-year-old Ganong is hoping to do even better and emulate some of his more illustrious countrymen.

He says "Tommy Moe won here (in Norway) and Daron Rahlves won here and hopefully I can bring it back to the U.S. with a win tomorrow."

Ganong's previous best result was seventh, but an impressive fifth-place finish in the downhill at the Sochi Olympics was a clear sign of his improving form.
