2013 Women's Downhill Race - Alpine Skiing World Championships Schladming

Marion Rolland was the surprise winner of the women's downhill at the World Championships in Schladming, as the Frenchwoman took advantage of an open race following the withdrawal of Lindsey Vonn following her injury. Italian Nadian Fanchini continued the surprises by taking silver whilst Maria Hoefl-Riesch continued her fine championship form by following up her Super-Combined gold with bronze, as she did in Garmisch two years earlier.
