Christl Haas had won the 1962 downhill World Championship and was favored to win in Innsbruck. She went off 13th, with the lead at the time held by her teammates, Edith Zimmermann. But Haas did not disappoint, winning the gold medal with over a second margin. The bronze medal went to Traudl Hecher, as it had in 1960 at Squaw Valley, which completed an Austrian medal sweep, only the second in Winter Olympic Alpine history, after the Austrian sweep of the 1956 men’s giant slalom. The defending gold medalist, German Heidi Biebl, placed fourth.
