The Salt Lake 2002 Games featured competition in five alpine disciplines: downhill, combined (one downhill and two slalom runs), super-G, giant slalom and slalom.
Janica Kostelic was the “Croatian Sensation” of the Games, becoming the first alpine skier ever to win four medals at a single Olympic Winter Games thanks to her final victory in the women’s giant slalom at Park City Mountain Resort. American Bode Miller burst onto the alpine scene with his remarkable recovery and silver medal in the super G while then-aspiring farmer Fritz Strobl won gold in the marquee event of the men’s downhill on the super-steep Grizzly course at Snowbasin. At Deer Valley, Anja Paerson won the women’s slalom, Sweden’s first medal of the Games.
