The favorite was the 1948 silver medalist, Trude Jochum-Beiser of Austria, who had won the 1950 World Championships. As the third skier off, she posted 1:47.1 and watched as the time held up for a gold medal. Germany’s Mirl Buchner placed second, one of three Alpine medals she won in Oslo, with bronzes in the slalom and giant slalom. The bronze medalist was Italy’s Giuliana Minuzzo who in 1956 at Cortina, would become the first woman to take the Oath of the Athletes at the Opening Ceremony.
