Alpine Skiing at the 1994 Winter Games: Previous Winter Games ▪ Next Winter Games


Host City: Lillehammer, Norway
Venue(s): Hafjell Alpine Centre, Øyer
Date Started: February 24, 1994
Date Finished: February 24, 1994
Format: Two runs, total time determined placement.

Gold: ITA Deborah Compagnoni
Silver: GER Martina Ertl-Renz
Bronze: SUI Vreni Schneider


The three favorites were [Carole Merle] (FRA), 1992 and 1993 World Cup champion, [Anita Wachter] (AUT), leading the 1993-94 World Cup in the GS, and [Deborah Compagnoni] (ITA), who had won a gold medal in the 1992 super-G. Compagnoni opened a big lead on the first run, with Wachter third, and Merle in sixth place. Compagnoni cemented the gold medal by also winning the second run, for a dominating victory. Wachter and Merle finished in a tie for fourth on the second run, but it was enough to drop them out of the medals. The silver and bronze went to the second and third finishers on the second run, [Martina Ertl] (GER) and [Vreni Schneider] (SUI). Compagnoni would defend her gold medal in 1998, becoming the first Alpine skier to win gold medals at three Winter Olympics.
