The best moguls skier in the world had been the defending gold medalist, Edgar Grospiron of France. But Grospiron had injured his knee in early 1992 and did not compete in the 1992-93 World Cup season, which was dominated by Canada’s Jean-Luc Brassard. However, when Grospiron returned in late 1993 he won four of the five World Cups prior to Lillehammer, setting up a battle between the two. Brassard and Grospiron went 1-2 in the qualifying, setting up the expected battle. Skiing next-to-last in the final, Grospiron posted by far the fastest run, but lost some form near the end of his run. The points he lost for that dropped him behind Russian Sergey Shupletsov, who led as Brassard took the course. Brassard skied conservatively and carefully, posting the third slowest time of the 16 finalists, but his turns were carved nicely, for which he received a perfect 15.0, with 5.0 from all but the French judge, which boosted him to the gold medal. Shupletsov won silver and Grospiron the bronze. A little over a year later, Shupletsov was killed in a motorcycle accident.
