Summary

Sweden’s Anja Pärson was expected to win, as she was World Champion in 2003 and 2005, had led the World Cup in 2003 and 2004, and was leading the race in 2005-06. Also highly considered was Finnish skier Tanja Poutiainen, World Cup winner in GS in 2005. On the first run, Pärson was second and Poutiainen third, but the surprising leader was American Julia Mancuso. Mancuso was not unknown, having placed third behind Pärson and Poutiainen at the 2005 World Championships. She had been on the World Cup circuit since 1999, with several podium finishes, but she had never won a World Cup event coming into Torino, although from 2002-04 she had won eight medals and five golds at the Junior World Championships. Mancuso was second on the second run, but the skier who beat her, Swede Anna Ottosson, had been only 13th on the first run, and this gave Super Jules the gold medal. Pärson would place only 14th on the second run to drop out the medals, finishing sixth, but Poutiainen would hold onto the silver medal, placing third on run two. Ottosson moved up to the bronze medal.
