Gisin has best time in downhill training

Dominique Gisin led a Swiss contingent that took three of the top four spots in training Tuesday for the this weekend's first women's downhill races of the World Cup season.

Gisin skied through snow flurries and fog to cover the 2,574-meter Olympic Downhill course in 1 minute, 52.80 seconds. Austria's Michaela Dorfmeister broke up the Swiss domination by finishing second in 1:52.65. Dorfmeister won the super-giant slalom race in Lake Louise last year.

Switzerland's Sylviane Berthod was third in 1:53.18 while Nadia Styger fourth in 1:53.43. The women will race downhills Friday and Saturday and a super-G on Sunday, AP reports.
