Sofia Goggia Leads Italian Podium Sweep in Bad Kleinkirchheim

Sofia Goggia returned to her winning ways before hitting PyeongChang with a downhill victory at Bad Kleinkichheim on Sunday. Skiing down a shortened course using the super-G start due to fog on the upper mountain, Goggia was characteristically aggressive and risky, and the style paid off massively. She bested her teammates Federica Brignone (whose previous best downhill result was the 12th place) by 1.10 seconds and Nadia Fanchini (who suffered a season-ending injury almost exactly one year earlier) by 1.45 seconds, but the Italian trio still swept the podium.
