Summary

This was the second men’s Alpine event, starting the day after the downhill with the downhill section of the combined. A change occurred in the format as well, with the placements determined by total time in the downhill and the two slalom runs. Previously, scoring had been by a point system based on the times of the skiers. The new system favored slalom skiers, as long as they could place reasonably well in the downhill.

The combined downhill was led by Norwegian Lasse Kjus, with Americans Kyle Rasmussen and Tommy Moe in second and third. Kjus had won the 1993 World Championships, followed by his teammate, Kjetil André Aamodt. Aamodt was well-positioned after the downhill, in sixth place. For the two slalom runs, Kjus placed seventh and Aamodt ninth but it was good enough to see them repeat their 1-2 finish from the 1993 Worlds. Moe was 15th in the slalom and dropped out of the medals, the bronze going to Norwegian Harald Christian Strand Nilsen. Norway’s medal sweep was only the third ever in Alpine skiing at the Winter Olympics, following Austrian sweeps in the 1956 men’s giant slalom and the 1964 women’s downhill.
