Carlo Janka ended a four-year-victory drought by winning a World Cup super-combined event in front of a jubilant home crowd in Wengen, Switzerland.

The former Olympic, world and overall World Cup champion got off to a blistering start to lead after the downhill leg of the race.

It put the 28-year-old in plain sight of his first victory since a giant slalom triumph at Kranjska Gora, Slovenia, in March 2011.

Later in the day he successfully defended his first run lead with a solid slalom performance to celebrate his first win in 89 races and his tenth career world cup victory.

Victor Muffat-Jeandat of France was second while 2011 overall World Cup champion Ivica Kostelic of Croatia was third.
