ARE, Sweden (AP) — Ramon Zenhausern edged Marco Schwarz in the final run as Switzerland narrowly beat rival Austria to follow up its Olympic title with gold in the team event at the Alpine skiing world championships Tuesday.

The final finished 2-2, with Switzerland winning thanks to a lower overall time. Wendy Holdener, who won the combined on Friday, gave Switzerland its first point.

Also on the winning team were Aline Danioth, Andrea Ellenberger, Sandro Simonet and Daniel Yule.

Italy beat Germany to take bronze.

Switzerland also beat Austria in the final at last year's Pyeongchang Games.
