Women's Slalom

Alpine Skiing at the 1984 Winter Games: Previous Winter Games ▪ Next Winter Games


Host City: Sarajevo, Yugoslavia
Venue(s): , Jahorina
Date Started: February 17, 1984
Date Finished: February 17, 1984
Format: Two runs, total time determined placement.

Gold: ITA Paola Magoni-Sforza
Silver: FRA Perrine Pelen
Bronze: LIE Ursula Konzett


The favorites were [Erika Hess] (SUI), who was slalom World Cup champion in 1982 and 1983, and [Tamara McKinney] (USA), overall World Cup champ in 1983, super-G/GS World Cup winner that year as well, and the leader in the 1983-84 slalom World Cup. But neither skied well. Hess placed only 10th on her first run, eventually moving up to fifth place, while McKinney missed a gate early on her first run, and did not finish. The first run leader was unknown Frenchwoman [Christelle Guignard], who would not finish the second run. Italy’s [Paola Magoni] had been tied for fourth on the first run, but posted the best time on the second run to win the gold medal in a major upset. She had never previously placed better than sixth in a World Cup event, and would never again reach such heights, winning one World Cup race, a slalom in 1985, and earning a bronze in the slalom at the 1985 World Championships.The silver medal was won by [Perrine Pelen], who had previously won Olympic bronze medals in the 1980 and 1984 giant slalom. Pelen was much better known and would have a much more heralded career. She was the 1980 slalom World Cup champion, would win the slalom gold medal at the 1985 World Championships, and ended her career after winning 14 World Cup races. A slalom specialist, she had seven podium finishes in the slalom World Cup at years’ end.
