Switzerland's Corinne Suter enjoyed her first ever downhill International Ski Federation World Cup victory, at the women's fog-hit event in Altenmarkt-Zuachensee, Austria.

The 2019 world downhill silver medallist, clocked 1min, 18.79sec, 0.29 seconds ahead of Italy's Nicol Delago.

Olympic combined champion Michelle Gisin took out the bronze, 0.98 seconds behind Suter.

But it was a disappointing competition for the Czech Republic's Ester Ledecká.

The overall leader in the downhill standings became the first person to win Olympic gold in skiing and snowboarding at the 2018 Pyeongchang Games and was leading the current standings.

However, she could only finish eighth, a full 1.41 seconds off the pace.

The World Cup Tour is returning to Altenmarkt-Zauchensee for the first time in three years.

The overall leader, Mikaela Shiffrin of the United States, opted out of the downhill, but could still compete in tomorrow's combined, which comprises a super-G and a slalom.
