Summary

Pernilla Wiberg (SWE) and Vreni Schneider (SUI) were expected to battle it out for the GS title. Wiberg had won the 1991 World Championship while Schneider was the defending gold medalist and the 1991 World Cup champion in giant slalom. Wiberg was the ninth starter on run one, and moved into the lead, while Schneider missed a gate early and did not finish. The leader after the first run was Austrian Ulrike Maier, with Wiberg second and Anita Wachter (AUT) third. Wiberg put away the gold medal by winning the second run, following by the surprising American, Diann Roffe. When she was only 17, Roffe had won the 1985 World Championship in GS, and added another giant slalom World Cup title later that month. But she had done almost nothing since then. Still, her sterling second run moved her into a tie for the silver medals with Wachter. Roffe would return in 1994 at Lillehammer to win the gold medal in super-G.
