The 2013/14 World Cup leader was Switzerland’s Patrizia Kummer who managed to avoid any falls on an icy, bumpy giant slalom course, and stayed up to win the gold medal. In the final Kummer defeated Japan’s Tomoka Takeuchi, the first Asian woman to win an Olympic snowboarding medal. The bronze went to 2011 World Champion, and the home crowd favorite, Alyona Zavarzina, whose husband, American expatriate Vic Wild, won the men’s parallel GS five minutes later.

The boarders faced a new course on the day of the event as it was changed after training because of course conditions. The difficult course saw many favorites crash out, including defending champion Nicolien Sauerbreij of the Netherlands, the 2013 World Champion Isabella Laböck of Germany, Russian silver medalist from 2010 Yekaterina Ilyukhina, and Austrian Marion Kreiner, the Vancouver bronze medalist.
