Steven Nyman won Friday's men's downhill, the American's third World Cup win, all on Val Gardena's Saslong slope.

Nyman clocked a time of 1:55.89 minutes to beat Norway's Kjetil Jansrud by 31 hundredths of a second, and Italy's Dominik Paris (1:15).

The 32-year-old United States skier was adding to his wins in Val Gardena in 2006 and, after six injury-blighted years, in 2012.

Jansrud leads the overall standings from Austria's Marcel Hirscher.
