In the women’s combined, the downhill was postponed from 17 February, and the slalom was held first, the women completing the downhill portion of the combined the next day. The leader after the slalom was Austrian Marlies Schild, a slalom specialist who would later win bronze in the open slalom. She was followed by Croatian Janica Kostelić, defending champion in the event who had won three gold medals at the 2002 Winter Olympics. But in the downhill, Kostelić posted the best time to defend her gold medal in the event, and win her fourth Olympic gold medal. It was not a surprise as Kostelić had been World Cup champion and World Champion in 2003 and 2005. Schild was seventh in the downhill but held on for the silver medal, with the bronze going to Sweden’s Anja Pärson, who was fourth in the slalom and second in the downhill.
