But Italian Sofia Goggia believes her rival, 2010 gold medal victor Lindsey Vonn, starts as the woman to beat.

Vonn, one of the most recognisable faces at the Olympics in South Korea, added: "I love what I do, I have so much fun going fast and pushing myself to the limit on downhill skis, there's nothing else I'd rather do". But last month, Vonn showed she is far from finished.

"Everything feels pretty good, I definitely was trying a few things with line", she told reporters. The victor of the combined has the fastest total time between one run of slalom-Shiffrin's best event-and one of downhill-Vonn's specialty.

Before the race, Vonn posted on social media that it would "most likely" be her last Olympic downhill.

The form book suggests there is little to choose between the world's top two women downhill skiers ahead of Wednesday's Olympic race at the Jeongseon Alpine Centre.

The downhill is a relatively new event for Shiffrin, who first established herself as a star in what are known as the technical events of slalom and giant slalom.

The 22-year-old Victor, Idaho, resident and alumna of the Jackson Hole Ski and Snowboard Club was the second fastest American, after Lindsey Vonn, who tied for sixth overall with Italy's Federica Brignone, according to unofficial results. Following her disappointing finish in the Super-G, she came under harsh attack on Twitter from people angry about her criticism of President Trump. I'm not going to do that.

While Vonn is the first to admit that she's a "crazy dog lady", she insists, "it's better than a insane cat lady".

Scoring on the 5-on-3 power play that came with Cajovsky ejected and Nagy in the box was the kind of confidence-building goal the US needed, and getting to five against the team coach Tony Granato called perhaps the best defensive team in the tournament has the Americans feeling good going into the quarterfinals.
