The favorite was Swiss skier Sonja Nef, the 2001 World Cup champion who was also leading the standings coming into the Winter Olympics. But Nef placed only sixth on the first run which was won by Croatian Janica Kostelić, who had already won gold medals in Salt Lake City in the slalom and combined. Kostelić blew away the field in the second run, winning that as well, to earn her third gold medal and fourth medal of the 2002 Winter Olympics. This made her the first woman to win three Alpine gold medals at one Winter Olympics, and the first skier of either gender to win four medals at Olympic Winter Games. Nef would improve on the second run, placing third, which earned her the bronze medal, behind Sweden’s Anja Pärson, who was fourth on the first run and second in her final effort. Pärson would soon become the world’s best in this event, winning the World Cup in 2003, 2004, and 2006, and the World Championship in 2003 and 2005.
