Of course, several skiers have done much better in Downhill than Super G over the years. Siebenhofer and B.Johnson from the current ones, Merighetti, Rolland & Kamer from the recently retired and off the top of my head the likes of Kate Pace and Hilary Lindh dating back to the 90s.

Hopefully it will change. Looking at the examples you gave (never heard of most of them) it seems quite rare to be trash in one and very good in the other.

You know who wears sunglasses inside?

Pace & Lindh are DH World Champions after all. They never had a World Cup podium in Super G but had multiple in DH. Lindh from Alaska of all places was always in Picabo Street's shadow but she won Olympic silver in 1992 and two medals at WCh including gold in 1997 when Street was out with injury. She retired prematurely due to a back injury after that season aged 28.

 

Nick Fellows was already there to provide ES commentary:

 

 

Kate Pace won at the infamous Morioka 1993 WCh. Those people who complain about Lake Louise being a boring course need to check back how the Morioka course looked like :p

Yes, I mentioned Rolland on the previous page ;) I suppose more people remember her best from the unceremonial exit three seconds into the Vancouver OG downhill :p

Very early reports that KV Lie has a broken tibia & fibula. Potential knee injury as well.

 

Schneeberger suffered a broken leg which you could see during live broadcast already.

 

 

Her leg looked absolutely twisted. It reminded me too much of Lanzinger, hopefully it’s nowhere near as severe.
