Everyone expected Katja Seizinger to win. She had easily won the downhill six days earlier, was the 1993 World Cup champion, 1993 World Champion, and was leading the 1993-94 World Cup in the super-G. The first skier off was Diann Roffe, who had won a silver medal at the 1992 Winter Olympics in the giant slalom. Roffe had first come to international attention in 1985 when she won the giant slalom World Championship, at only 17-years-old, and then won a World Cup GS a few weeks later. But between then and 1994 she had no World Cup victories. Her run in Lillehammer looked good, with no discernible flaws, and as the other seeded skiers came down, her time held up, earning Roffe a shocking gold medal. Seizinger started seventh but fell and did not finish the race. The silver was also a surprise, going to Russian Svetlana Gladysheva, who was mainly a downhiller, having won a bronze in that event at the 1991 World Championships.
