The best combined skier ever was likely Norway’s Kjetil André Aamodt. Aamodt had won the combined World Cup four times prior to the 2002 Winter Olympics and would win it again in 2001-02. Aamodt had also been World Champion in the combined in 1997, 1999, and 2001. For the first time at the Winter Olympics the combined event was held on one day, with the downhill in the morning and the slalom in the afternoon. Aamodt placed fourth in the downhill, which was led by American Bode Miller. On the first slalom run, Miller and Aamodt skied cautiously, tying for fifth place. With the second run remaining, Aamodt led, followed by his teammate Lasse Kjus, Austrian Benjamin Raich in third, and Miller back in fifth place. On the final slalom run, Miller attacked the course, with a time more than one second ahead of Raich, who was second on the run, and Aamodt, in fourth on the run, 2.16 seconds back. Aamodt still hung on for the gold medal, though barely, but Miller moved up to second place, with Raich getting the bronze.
