Summary

Alberto Tomba was the defending champion but his slalom performances in 1989-1991 were below his best. However, he had turned it around during the Olympic season and was leading the World Cup slalom race coming into Albertville. He had shown his form earlier in the Winter Olympics by defending his giant slalom gold medal. Tomba’s biggest challenge was expected to come from Marc Girardelli, the 1991 World Champion and World Cup leader, but Tomba avoided that challenge when Girardelli missed a gate on the first run. Still, Tomba’s first run was nothing special, placing him only sixth, with the lead going to Norway’s Finn Christian Jagge. Tomba was a full 1.58 seconds back of Jagge, but on the second run, he let it all out, winning that phase easily over Austrian Michael Tritscher, who was 0.69 seconds behind. Jagge was back in sixth place on the second run, but had lost “only” 1.30 seconds to Tomba, and held onto the gold medal. Tritscher’s second run moved him up to the bronze medal position.
