ARE, Sweden (AP) – Switzerland has won gold in the 11 events in the history of the Alpine Ski World Championships.

The Swiss completed their medal collection by narrowly defeating their rival, Austria, to win the team event on Tuesday.

Ramon Zenhausern beat Marco Schwarz in the final, while the Swiss continued their Olympic title at the Pyeongchang Games last year.

Wendy Holdener, who won the combined Friday, gave her first point to Switzerland.

The final is over 2-2 after the four parallel slalom races, with Switzerland taking it through a lower total time.

Austria is the only other country to have world titles in the five men's races, five women's races and the team event.

Aline Danioth, Andrea Ellenberger, Sandro Simonet and Daniel Yule were also part of the winning team.

"Hats off to Wendy and Ramon who really beat us and made the best of times," said Yule. "It's good for us, pure tech guys, to pitch the world champions this way."

Italy defeated Germany to win the bronze. Sixteen teams competed in the KO format.

Switzerland also beat Austria in the final in Pyeongchang.

Holdener and Yule both stated that the team spirit was the decisive factor.

"Even when we attend tournaments in the city and meet slalom girls, we always have a football game together or something like that," said Yule. "So it was a very important factor today. We just had fun.

Switzerland eliminated their host country Sweden in the quarter-finals.

"Even though we chased the Swedish group, we were very happy for your support," Holdener told fans. "It was a great crowd today."

As Mikaela Shiffrin focused on the remaining individual events and Lindsey Vonn retired after the run, the United States did not join a team.
