Summary

After the first run, the lead was held by Stein Eriksen, already a gold medalist in the giant slalom, and Austria’s Hans Senger. Third was Othmar Schneider, the 1950 World Champion in the event, who had already won a silver medal in the downhill. In the second run, Eriksen struggled and Senger fell and did not finish. Schneider posted the second best time in the second run and his consistency won him the gold medal, Eriksen taking silver. Eriksen’s fellow Norwegian, Guttorm Berge, placed third, also due to consistency as he was equal sixth on run one and third on run two. His bronze medal made him the second non-Alpine national to medal in Alpine skiing, following Eriksen.
