Biography

Alenka Dovžan made her World Cup début in the 1993/1994 season, which turned out to be her best. In Cortina d’Ampezzo, she won a Super G World Cup race, her only career victory. Later that season, she became the first Winter Olympic medallist for Slovenia when she captured a surprise bronze medal in the combined event at Lillehammer. Although Dovžan remained active on the World cup circuit, she never again achieved a podium spot. Her best overall World Cup position was 12th (1994), and in 2000 she also won the Slovene giant slalom title. Together with her partner, former Slovenia international ice hockey player Edvin Karahodžič, she runs a restaurant in Jesenice.
