Summary

Sweden’s Ingemar Stenmark was still considered the best technical skier in the world but he was ineligible for the 1984 Olympics, considered a professional by the IOC because of his many endorsement contracts. As the IOC moved to an all open Olympics, he would be one of the last athletes denied his chance for this hypocritical problem. In his absence the men’s GS was wide open. Stenmark would end the 1983-84 season as the co-World Cup leader in giant slalom, along with Switzerland’s Pirmin Zurbriggen. Zurbriggen skied the giant slalom but fell during his first run and was out. The leader on the first run was his teammate, Max Julen, who had almost no significant World Cup record. He maintained the lead on the second run to win the gold medal, with the silver going to Slovenian Yugoslav Jure Franko, who posted the best second run. This was the first ever Olympic Winter medal for Yugoslavia, which delighted the Sarajevo crowds.
