Italy’s Dominik Paris kept his composure to claim a men’s alpine skiing World Cup downhill at Chamonix on Saturday. The 26-year-old finished second in Friday’s Alpine combined race and carried that form over into the downhill, flying through the fog and heavy snowfall.

Paris dominated his opponents from the outset and clocked a time of 1 minute 58.38 seconds for a fifth career win and 13th podium finish.

America’s Steven Nyman produced a solid run but it wasn’t to be for the 34-year-old who eventually had to settle for second place, 00.35seconds further back.

Switzerland’s Beat Feuz completed the podium while fellow countryman Peter Fill came home fifth, moving him to within 26 points of downhill leader Aksel Lund Svindal, who is out for the season after crashing in Kitzbuehel in January.
