Park City's Jeremy Nobis won a gold medal in the giant slalom Friday at the World Junior Alpine Championships here.

Nobis finished first in both runs, with a total time of 2:17.20."I gave both runs my all," he said. "My second run wasn't as good as my first, but it was enough to win."

Nobis' medal is the fourth won by a member of the U.S. team at the championships, and he could well add to that today by medaling in the combined.
