Austria's Nico Gleirscher snapped Felix Loch's winning streak and claimed a stunning maiden World Cup gold medal in St Moritz.
The 23-year-old, who won the sprint world title in Konigsee last weekend, continued his fine form with victory by six-hundredths of a second.
Four-time Olympic champion Loch was beaten to the world title by Russian Roman Repilov and wasn't even the fastest German in the final World Cup race of the season.

That honour went to Max Langenhan as the two-time world junior champion put down the fastest second run to claim silver in 2:15.912, with Loch taking bronze.
