The pre-Games favorite was Swiss skier Brigitte Oertli, who was in the middle of winning three straight World Cups in the combined. Better in the technical events, she placed 11th in the downhill, which was led by Carole Merle (FRA). After the event was delayed one day because of fog and snow, Oertli posted the fastest time in the first run of the slalom but still trailed Austrian Anita Wachter, who had been third in the downhill and second in the slalom first run. Oertli again had the fastest run in the second section of the slalom, but Wachter placed second in the run to maintain a narrow lead over Oertli and win the gold medal. Trailing those two in third place was Oertli’s teammate Maria Walliser, who had been second in the combined downhill, but placed only 11th overall in the slalom.
