Having already won gold in the giant slalom, Benjamin Raich was the leading contender in the slalom, as he was also the 2005 World Champion and World Cup leader. He dominated the event to win the gold medal, becoming the fifth skier to win both runs of an Olympic slalom, although narrowly so, winning both by only 0.01 seconds. Behind Raich came two of his Austrian teammates, with Reinfried Herbst second and Rainer Schönfelder third. This was the fifth time in Olympic history that a nation had swept the medals in an Alpine skiing event, but the third by Austrian skiers. They had also done this in the 1956 men’s giant slalom, and the 1964 women’s downhill. The other two Alpine medal sweeps came at the 1994 men’s combined, by Norway, and the 1998 women’s combined, by Germany.
