Downhill is considered to be the king of all events, due to tremendous speed and danger surrounding it. The event itself causes adrenalin levels to rise to skiers and to spectators as well. Incredible speed are being developed at this event, in some cases easily surpassing 130km/h, while the record was set by Italian Johan Clarey in 2013, when he was skiing with the speed of 161km/h. That has also prompted various unfortunate accidents in this event in recent history, so we have to admire the success and the courage of the participating skiers.

Sofia Goggia is the absolute favorite to take home the golden medal in this event, with her recent form clearly suggesting she is currently performing at the highest level. The golden medalist from the 2018 Winter Olympics also won the World cup in downhill this season, which was her first World cup title in any event. Besides downhill, she also competes in Giant Slalom and Slalom, making her training unique and diverse. Goggia finished fourth at the last WC in 2017 and will be looking to win her first golden medal at a World championship; she won bronze in 2015, but in slalom event.

One of the most recognizable faces of the skiing World cup is undoubtedly Lindsey Vonn (born Kildow). With 33 years, she is one of the oldest competitors at the World cup and will be looking to cap off her career with yet another golden medal. Vonn won the bronze medal at the downhill event at the Winter Olympics but won the gold back in 2010. She also won one downhill golden medal at the World championship back in 2009, with numerous titles in World cup as well. Vonn had a career-threating injury back in 2014, but managed to bounce off and she is still considered a firm favorite at this event. Goggia is practically only ahead of Vonn in favorite ranks, but it will be interesting to see this duel once again – last one went to the Italian skier.

It will be a huge surprise if any of the abovementioned two finish outside of top three and the third place leaves a lot of questions. One of the favorites to infiltrate on the podium is the fourth placed skier from 2018 Winter Olympics, Tina Weirather. Tina might be a Super G skier overall, but her downhill skills are also worth mentioning and she might go for the top three. Besides Tina, we also have the silver medalist from 2018 Olympics. Tina never considered herself to be a downhill skier, but the results in the last year might change her mind and her jump might actually be at the next World championship in Sweden.
