IZU, Japan: Jolanda Neff led a Swiss clean sweep of medals in the Olympic women's mountain bike event with a masterful victory on a slippery Izu circuit on Tuesday.

Former world champion Neff got ahead early as several favourites made mistakes in a chaotic start and produced an error-free ride to win by one minute 10 seconds from team mate Sina Frei.

Linda Indergand completed the Swiss dominance as she took the bronze medal.
