SummaryEdit

The tenth and final alpine event of the Olympics, the two runs were held in spring-like conditions. The temperature at the starting gate for the first run exceeded 7 °C (45 °F) and 5 °C (41 °F) for the second run at night. Of the top eight times after the first run, five did not finish the second run (André Myhrer, Jean-Baptiste Grange, Ted Ligety, Felix Neureuther, and Alexis Pinturault), which spawned criticism of the course.[2] The second run was set by Ante Kostelić, known for idiosyncratic gate settings. He is the father of competitor Ivica Kostelić of Croatia, who finished ninth.[3][4][5]

Less than seven weeks shy of his 35th birthday, Mario Matt of Austria became the oldest gold medalist in Olympic alpine skiing history.[4][5] The silver went to defending World Cup champion Marcel Hirscher, and Henrik Kristoffersen became the youngest male to medal in an Olympic alpine event at age 19.[2]

ResultsEdit

The first run was held at 16:45[6] and the second run at 20:15.[7]
