The last two World Champions were Deborah Compagnoni (ITA-1997) and Pernilla Wiberg (SWE-1996), with Wiberg also having won the 1997 World Cup slalom. Compagnoni led after the first run, followed by German Hilde Gerg, with Wiberg out as she missed an early gate. Gerg won the second run, with Compagnoni only fifth, to get the gold medal for the German skier. Compagnoni held onto the silver, followed by Australian Zali Steggall winning bronze. Steggall had been steady, third on the first run and fourth on the second. This was the first Winter Olympic medal won by an Australian, although in 1992 Oceania had won one, with New Zealander Annelise Coberger winning silver in the slalom. Steggall’s brother, Zeke Steggall, also competed in Nagano, in snowboarding.
