Summary

Ingemar Stenmark had already won the giant slalom and was favored in the slalom as well. He had won the World Cup slalom title every year since 1975, and in 1978, had won World Championships both in slalom and GS. His biggest competition was expected to come from the American Phil Mahre. In March 1979, Mahre was skiing at Lake Placid when he fell badly, breaking his ankle. Treated by renowned sports medicine surgeon Dick Steadman, Mahre had a plate and several screws placed in his ankle and recovered to be ready for the Lake Placid Olympics. He led after the first round with 53.31, with Stenmark back in fourth place at 53.89. Off 12th in the second run, Stenmark posted 50.37, which would give him the gold medal. Mahre placed only eighth in the second run, but held on for the silver medal.
