PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (Reuters) - Italy's Sofia Goggia was leading the Olympic women's downhill with a time of one minute, 39.22 seconds after the first 20 skiers had completed the run at the Jeongseon Alpine center on Wednesday.


Norwegian Ragnhild Mowinckel was in silver medal position in 1:39.31 with American Lindsey Vonn, the 2010 champion, third in 1.39.69.


The remainder of the 39-strong field are outsiders but a shock result cannot be ruled out as Ester Ledecka showed by winning the Pyeongchang super-G in bib 26 at the weekend.
