Summary

The leader in the 1993-94 World Cup was Austrian Christian Mayer and he responded by leading on the first run. In second place was Swiss Urs Kälin, who had been runner-up in the event at the 1991 World Championships. They were followed by Markus Wasmeier, who had won a surprising gold medal in the super-G only four days earlier. On the second run, Wasmeier was best of the leaders, placing third on the run, to move ahead and win another unlikely gold medal. Kälin was right behind him in fourth place, to secure the silver medal. Mayer’s second run was only the 10th best and he dropped down to the bronze medal spot. The two-time defending champion, Alberto Tomba, competed but was only 13th on the first run and missed a gate on the second and did not finish.
