FRANZ HEINZER, of Switzerland, completed a hat-trick of World Cup victories in the downhill race at Veysonnaz yesterday. Heinzer, who won the last two downhills at St Anton and Garmisch Partenkirchen, won in a time of 1min 59.53sec.

THE women's World Cup downhill at Haus, Austria, was cancelled after just nine runners yesterday when the course was ruled too soft after Austria's Sabine Ginther, and Germany's Regina Haeusl both skidded. However, the jury ruled today's slalom would take place.
