Alpine Skiing

In ten individual events and a thrilling team event, some of the favourites lived up to expectations alongside newcomers who claimed top spots.

Biggest surprise

Besides the astonishing win in the super-G by Ester Ledecka (CZE), who also won gold in snowboard parallel giant slalom, Katharina Gallhuber (AUT) and Ramon Zenhäusern (SUI) surprised by claiming Olympic medals in their respective slaloms, without having earned a podium in slalom on the World Cup tour before. Both added an additional medal in the alpine team event and left PyeongChang 2018 with two additional pieces of hardware in their luggage.

Records

Aksel Lund Svindal (35 years, 1 month, 21 days) and André Myhrer (35 years, 1 month, 12 days) set the record as the oldest Olympic Champions in downhill and slalom respectively.

Best venue moment

The Olympic debut of the alpine team event proved to be highly exciting and the athletes enjoyed fighting for Olympic medals together as a team. Fans and media also liked the new head-to-head racing format. It was a perfect way to conclude successful Olympic Winter Games for the three nations that won most medals in PyeongChang 2018.
