Switzerland’s Corinne Suter and Italy’s Sofia Goggia are expected to go head-to-head in the women’s downhill competition in St. Anton as the International Ski Federation (FIS) Alpine Ski World Cup season continues.
Suter finished as the winner of the opening downhill race of the season last month in Val-d'Isère with Goggia ending second.
The duo switched places the following day when the second competition was held.
