Summary

The favorite was Janica Kostelić, who was the 2001 World Cup champion in overall, slalom, and combined. But she had had several surgeries in the summer of 2001, and was not at her best coming into Salt Lake. The slalom started six days after the combined event was held, which Kostelić had surprisingly won. She took the lead on the first run. The second run was held in heavy snow, and the early skiers had an advantage. Going off 15th hampered Kostelić but she held on to place fifth in the run, and stayed in first place to win the gold medal. Laure Pequegnot (FRA) had been second on the first run, and she also hung on thru the tough conditions to take the silver medal. This was the second gold medal for Kostelić in Salt Lake City, and she would finish the 2002 Winter Olympics with three golds, adding the giant slalom, and four medals in all, with a silver in the super-G.
