Downhill is an alpine skiing discipline. The rules for the Downhill were originally developed by Sir Arnold Lunn for the 1921 British National Ski Championships. "Downhill skiing" is a commonly used term that is synonymous with "alpine skiing" to denote the sport and recreational activity of alpine skiing. The Downhill discipline involves the highest speeds and therefore the greatest risks of all the alpine events. Racers on a typical international-level course exceed speeds of 130 km/h and some courses, such as the notable Lauberhorn course in Wengen, Switzerland, and the Hahnenkamm course in Kitzbühel, Austria, speeds of up to 150 km/h in certain sections are common. The 100 mph barrier was broken by Johan Clarey at the 2013 Lauberhorn World Cup race beating previous record of 98mph, set by Italian Stefan Thanei in 2005. Competing in the Downhill event requires skiers to perfect an aerodynamically efficient position to minimize drag and increase speed. This contrasts to the technical expertise required in lower speed slalom events where turns are progressively more emphasized.
