Slovenia’s Ilka Stuhec produced a stunning performance to secure the Women’s downhill event at Lake Louise.

In the absence of Lindsey Vonn, who is still recovering from a right arm injury, the 26-year-old underdog completed the course in a time of 1 minute and 45.48 seconds, enough to beat Italy’s Sofia Goggia while Kajsa Kling of Sweden had to settle for third place.

Pre-race favourite Lara Gut just missed out on a podium finish with Viktoria Rebensburg and Stacey Cook coming home fourth and fifth respectively.

Gut’s frustrating run sees America’s Mikaela Shiffrin retain top spot in the overall standings going into Saturday’s second downhill event.
