Rosi Mittermaier had won a surprise gold medal in the downhill three days before. A better technical skier, she was thought to have a chance to add a second title in the slalom. Mittermaier’s teammate Pamela Behr led the first run with Mittermaier second, and the always solid Danièle Debernard third. But Mittermaier posted the best time on the second run to win her second gold medal, with Behr dropping to fifth place overall. Debernard dropped to fourth, with the bronze medal going to Liechtenstein’s Hanni Wenzel, the first Olympic medal ever won by an athlete from the tiny nation.
