Swiss skier Beat Feuz won the last men’s downhill race of the season on Wednesday at the World Cup finals in St. Moritz.

Feuz finally hit the top step of a World Cup podium for a first time since 2012 following a series of near misses.

He crossed the line with a winning time of 1 minutes 40.44seconds.

Steven Nyman took second place at the Swiss resort to continue his fine form of late.

The American missed out on his fourth World Cup victory by a mere eight hundredths of a second, but it was his fourth consecutive podium placing which capped off a stellar end to his season.

Canada’s Erik Guay came home in third place.

Peter Fill, meanwhile, became the first ever Italian to win the men’s World Cup downhill title.

His 10th place finish was enough to overtake Norway’s impressive Aksel Lund Svindal in the standings. Svindal was forced to end his season due to injury but had remained in the running for the crown.
