Giant slalom is easily considered as one of the most difficult events in alpine skiing, due to extreme technical predispositions surrounding the event. The combination of speed and technique make giant slalom (from now on written as GS) one of the most interesting and intense events at the upcoming World championship. In the past, these events have always caused big excitement in the audience and at the 2018 Olympics, it was one of the most followed event.The upcoming WC will take place in Are, Sweden in February of next year.

American skier Mikaela Shiffrin is the probably the first favorite to win this event and one of the most prospectus skier in recent years. With only 23 years of age, she already has two golden medals from Winter Olympics. At the 2018 Winter Olympics, Shiffrin won the Giant Slalom golden medal with ease and also added this medal to her slalom Olympic gold from 2014. Shiffrin won the World cup for two years in a row and came second at the last WC in 2017. Although she predominantly skies on slalom events, she has proven to be a versatile skier with Giant Slalom and downhils also events where she can count on good results. She is widely expected to continue her domination and a success at the WC in Sweden looks inevitable.

Another Olympic gold medalist in Giant Slalom is hoping for a great result at the upcoming World championship. German athlete Viktoria Rebensburg won the GS event back in 2010, but came only fourth in 2018, so we can expect her to be extremely motivated for this event. Besides her GS gold eight years ago, Rebensburg also won the GS event this year, as Shiffrin mostly focused on her slalom events. Rebensburg still does not have a golden medal at the WC event, with the silver medal from 2015 her only relevant result. She will most likely be the main rival to Shiffrin at the 2019 WC and it will be interesting to see their duel once again.

Besides the abovementioned athletes, there is a couple of more skiers capable of winning a medal, possibly even upsetting the likely winner in Shiffrin. France skier Tessa Worley is the reigning World champion, after securing her second WC title two years ago. She is also the winner of the 2017 World cup event in GS, finishing ahead of Shiffrin.  Tessa is not very impressive in the 2018 season, as she finished only seventh in the Olympics so she will look to correct that result at this event. Besides Worley, Ragnhild Mowinckel is a skier that might attack the medals from behind, since her form is in constat uprising in recent years. Her silver medal finish at the 2018 Winter games is the sole proof for that and her fine form might continue for the upcoming World championships as well.
