Description

The IOC offers the following Video News Release to all news agencies, broadcasters and online news platforms free of charge.

French skier August Aulnette and his Norwegian rival Mikkel Remsoey shared Gold in a fiercely competitive Men’s Alpine Combined Slalom in the winter Youth Olympic Games (YOG) Lausanne 2020.

Remsoey had a slight advantage after the Super-G (Super Giant Slalom) discipline over Aulnette. Both needed to catch up the pre-race favourite Adam Hofstedt of Sweden in the second and final discipline, Slalom. 

Aulnette ensured a dead heat with Remsoey, both finishing on a combined time of       1:28.41. Hofstedt failed to overhaul them, forced to settle for bronze.

Austria’s Amanda Salzgeber enjoyed a clear cut victory in the women’s Alpine Individual Combined Slalom. Salzgeber won gold more than twenty years after her mother, Anita Wachter, won the Women’s Alpine Combined at the Olympic Winter Games, Calgary 1988.

The 17-year-old from the Ski Club Montafon finished almost a second clear of her nearest rival, Israel’s Noa Szollos to win Gold. It was the sixteen year old’s second medal of the games after winning bronze in the Women’s Super-G.

Switzerland’s Amelie Klopfenstein, who was not even in the Swiss squad a week ago but was called up because of injury, added to the gold she took in Super-G with bronze.
