Alpine World Ski Championships 2019 odds

After a turbulent and very interesting 2018 skiing season, which included the 2018 Winter Olympics held in PyeongChang, the skiers worldwide are taking a well-deserved break and will look forward to the 2018/2019 alpine skiing season. One of the highlights of the season ahead will certainly be the 45th World Ski Championship.

The 45th edition of the World Ski Championship will be held from February 5th to 7th in Are, Sweden. This will be the third time this Swedish city will organize this event, with the previous two being in 1954 and 2007. The previous event, held in 2017 in St. Moritz in Switzerland saw Austria being the most successful country, with nine medals overall, with three gold ones. The 2019 event will host over 70 countries, which will participate in eleven events, one for each gender plus one mixed event.

Historically speaking, the most successful country at the World Alpine Skiing Championship is Austria, which have managed to win a total of 286 medals, with 95 gold and will most likely break the 100 gold medals barrier next winter, becoming the first country to do so. Switzerland and France are second and third on this all-time list respectively with 191 and 128 medals in total. There are plenty of events for all countries involved and in this article we will take a look at them and see which participants might be the favorite to take home the shiniest medal.

Traditionally one of the fastest and most dangerous event, Super G is often one of the most exciting events at the World Ski Championship. Austrian skier Matthias Meyer surprisingly took home the golden medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics, despite finishing tenth in the World cup. Besides the Austrian skier, Swiss skier Beat Feuz is also hoping for a Championship title in super G, after claiming the silver medal at the Olympics and finishing ninth at the World cup

Czech skier Ester Ledecka made headlines this Winter Olympics as being the only woman ever to win the Super-G but also the snowboarding event. However, she is not seen as a huge potential and a favorite for the World Championship contest in Super-G. Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein won the bronze medal at the Winter Olympics, but dominated throughout the World cup in Super G and claimed the top prize at the end. The 29-year old faces tough challenge from Anna Veith, who is also noted for her great Super-G performance in the past season or two.

Giant Slalom is by many experts seen as the top event at nearly every alpine skiing championship, because it allows the skiers to involve tactics and speed does not really count in this discipline. Austrian Marcel Hirscher is practically the only favorite at this tournament and it would be a major surprise if this event falls into anybody else’s hands. Hirscher is the current Olympic, World cup and World championship winner. The top three however be rounded up by Henrik Kristoffersen and Alexis Pinturault – two skiers that were behind Hirscher at last two major events
