    Background: Marie-Therese Nadig of Switzerland gained her first-ever World Ski Cup victory on Friday (24 January) on the downhill course at Innsbruck, Austria, which will be used for the Olympic games in a year's time.

    Twenty-year-old Miss Nadig's victory was her first since she won the giant slalom and downhill races in the last winter Olympics at Sapporo in Japan. It came as no surprise as she had dominated the practice sessions on the new downhill course.

    Annemarie Proell-Moser of Austria was edged into second place, 0.36 seconds behind, with Jacqueline Rouvier of france making an impressive comeback to take third place.

    Frau Proell-Moser, now well on the way to her fifth successive
    World Cup, is seemingly no longer invincible in the downhill, but has made up for it this season with a string of giant slalom wins.

    Ski-ing experts agreed that the Axamer Lizum course, 2,515 metres (yards) long, with a drop of 700 metres (yards), was technically exacting, with sharp curves demanding tight concentration and penalising every small error.

    Two Canadian skiers, Kathy Kaeiner and Karen Cloutier fell heavily during their runs.
