Vreni Schneider had won the gold medal in this event and the giant slalom in 1988, and had since dominated slalom on the World Cup circuit. She was World Cup champion in 1989, 1990, 1992, 1993, and would win again in 1994 and 1995, and World Champion in 1991. But in early 1994, Schneider was recovering from a back problem, and the early leader in the 1993-94 World Cup was Sweden’s Pernilla Wiberg. But on the first run, Schneider placed only fifth, the run leader being Slovenia’s Katja Koren, with Wiberg second. But Schneider’s second run was legendary, almost 1.3 seconds faster than Koren and exactly 1.3 seconds better than Wiberg. It made Schneider the first woman to win three Olympic gold medals, and was her fifth Olympic medal, the first Alpine skier of either gender to win that many. The silver medal went to Austrian Elfi Eder, the 1993 World Championship bronze medalist, who was the only skier within ½-a-second of Schneider on the second run.
