Ingemar Stenmark was still the best technical skier in the world but was declared ineligible by the IOC for being a professional, which was quite hypocritical as all the world’s top skiers were paid well for their talents. With Stenmark out the favorite’s role fell to American Phil Mahre, who was overall World Cup champion in 1982 and 1983, and won discipline titles in the slalom and giant slalom in 1982 and the giant slalom in 1983. But Mahre skied somewhat raggedly on the first run, finishing only in third place, the lead taken by his twin brother, Steve, with Sweden’s Jonas Nilsson in second. Steve Mahre had a big lead for the slalom of 0.67 seconds, but his second run would place him only eighth. Phil fared better, posting the second best time on the second time down, which brought him the gold medal, although Steve held on for the silver medal. Nilsson dropped to fourth, with the bronze going to France’s Didier Bouvet. The best time on the second run was posted by Italy’s Oswald Tötsch who finished fourth overall. The Mahre twins’ 1-2 finish was the eighth time in Olympic history (thru 1984) that siblings had finished 1-2 in an individual Olympic event, but thru 2008, it is the only time this has been accomplished by twins.
