'Fearless' and 'daring' would be two words to describe Sofia Goggia who has come back from numerous injuries to stake her claim as the best downhill racer of her generation.

At just nine, in response to the question, "What is your sporting dream?", she replied, "To win the Olympic downhill."

When asked to describe how motivated she was to achieve that objective on a scale of 0 (not motivated at all) to 10 (extremely motivated), she put a circle round the “10” and underlined the word "extremely" three times.

At PyeongChang 2018, she made that dream come true to become Italy's first Olympic women's downhill champion.

It was a long route to the top for Goggia who had already come back from a serious knee injury before making her World Cup debut aged 19 in December 2012.

A year later, having finished fourth in the 2013 World Championship Super-G at Schladming (AUT), she tore a cruciate knee ligament and damaged her meniscus in the Lake Louise (CAN) downhill.

Instead of challenging for medals on her Olympic debut at Sochi 2014, she commentated on the event for Italian television.

"My whole body hurts. But skiing is better than going for a walk."
