Italy's Sofia Goggia claimed her 10th International Ski Federation (FIS) Alpine Ski World Cup victory in the women's downhill in Crans-Montana in Switzerland.

It was also her seventh victory in the discipline in which she is the Olympic champion, finishing ahead of the Czech Republic's two-sport star Ester Ledecká.

Ledecká, who is an Olympic champion in snowboarding and skiing, made the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup podium for the fifth time in her career, 0.2sec behind Goggia.

The United States' Breezy Johnson was third for the fourth time this season - the joint-best result of her career.

All four of Johnson's podiums have come within five weeks and have cemented her as one of the contenders for the downhill title this season - now only behind Goggia in the standings.

Slovakia's Petra Vlhová continues to lead the overall standings, having finished fourth.

Switzerland's Jasmine Flury and Germany's Kira Weidle were joint fifth.

Priska Nufer of Switzerland, Mirjam Puchner of Austria, Italy's reigning World Cup champion Federica Brignone and compatriot Nadia Delago completed the top 10.

Brignone's title defence has stuttered so far this season and the Italian has not made the podium yet in 2021.

She currently sits eighth in the overall standings.

Vlhová's day went well on the whole as her closest competitors lost ground in the overall standings.

Michelle Gisin of Switzerland remains in second, but failed to win points after finishing down in 33rd.

Italy's Marta Bassino similarly failed to win points after finishing 35th, while American Mikaela Shiffrin has opted to skip downhill races thus far.

Goggia's win moves her into the top five overall, while her downhill lead now stands at 140 points ahead of Johnson.

Vlhová has a 110-point advantage in the overall standings.

Another downhill race is scheduled in Crans-Montana tomorrow, followed by the super-G on Sunday (January 24).
