For the first time in her career, Austria’s Stephanie Venier wins the downhill in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, 0.25 seconds ahead of the returning Italian, Sofia Goggia.

Kira Weidle of Germany rounds out the podium in third, finally returning to the top three for the first time since her third-place finish in the Lake Louise downhill early on in the season.
