I've opened a biathlon thread, so this one can be free to discuss alpine skiing
Will Aksel Lund Svindal win the downhill? He is the favourite, but has not been very impressive in the practice runs.
I believe Svindal is in a good form, bronze from super-G is a proof of that. Of course, super-G has been stronger for him than downhill but when Ligety wins a super-G race, you know it's a bit strange race.
Svindal is definitely the favourite and has a very good chance to a podium finish. But I think it's more likely he won't win, there are many tough competitiors. Another skier I have a good feeling about is Hannes Reichelt. He was 3rd in slame slope last year, has one victory and two 3ed place from last three downhill races, and was fastest in the 1st training. He's my 2nd biggest winner favourite. Other skiers that are favourites in my opinion are Innerhofer, Paris, Guay, and maybe Kröll.
