World super-G champion Dominik Paris of Italy secured his third straight downhill triumph on the famous Stelvio course at the International Ski Federation Alpine Skiing World Cup stop in Bormio.
Paris continued his formidable run of form at the Italian venue - home to one of the toughest courses on the circuit - by recording a time of 1min 49.56sec.
The 30-year-old Italian, winner of the corresponding event in 2017 and 2018, finished the reduced event 0.39sec faster than Switzerland's Beat Feuz in second.
Austria's Matthias Mayer did enough for third after completing his run a further 0.03 back.

Paris is second on the overall World Cup standings and trails leader Henrik Kristoffersen of Norway by 30 points.
Kristoffersen occupies top spot on the leaderboard with 379 points heading into another downhill race tomorrow.
Today's event replaced the downhill scheduled for Val Gardena on Saturday (December 21), which was cancelled because of heavy snow.
