Summary

Austrians Petra Kronberger and Sabine Ginther were expected to battle it out for this title. Ginther was leading the 1991-92 World Cup and had shared the combined World Cup title in 1991 with France’s Florence Masnada. But in training the day before the event started, Ginther fell, breaking a bone in her back and was unable to compete. This left it open for Kronberger who posted the fastest time in the downhill. As she was the 1991 World Cup slalom champion, and would win the gold medal in the slalom later in the week, this effectively ended the gold medal race. Kronberger also had the best time in the second slalom run and skied to an overwhelming victory in the event. Her teammate, Anita Wachter, won silver with Masnada taking bronze. Kronberger was one of the most well-rounded women skiers ever. She won only one discipline World Cup title, that the slalom in 1991 but she was a three-time overall World Cup Champion – 1990, 1991, 1992, and is one of only four women to have won World Cup races in all five events. Her versatility is shown by her gold medal win in the 1992 Olympic slalom and a downhill gold medal at the 1991 World Championships.
