    CHRISTINE GOITSCHEL, THE OLYMPIC SLALOM CHAMPION FROM FRANCE, WAS THE STAR PERFORMER IN THE GIANT SLALOM OF THE CRITERIUM OF THE FIRST SNOW AT VAL D'ISERE IN THE FRENCH ALPS YESTERDAY (SATURDAY). MILLE. GOITSCHEL SHOWED SUPERB TIMING AND SPEED TO WIN EASILY IN 1 MIN 22.83 SECONDS. TWENTY SIX STARTERS - MORE THAN HALF THE CONTESTANTS - WERE DISQUALIFIED WHEN THEY FAILED TO HANDLE A TRICKY LEFT-HAND HAIRPIN TURN ABOUT TWO THIRDS OF THE WAY DOWN THE COURSE. OTHER PLACING WERE: MADELEINE BOCHATAY (FRANCE) 1 MIN 24.81 SECS, SECOND, CHRISTINE TERRAILLON (FRANCE) 1 MIN 27.22 SECS, THIRD.

    ALTHOUGH MANY OF THE GIRLS CRASHED HEAVILY, THERE WERE NO INJURIES. MADELEINE BOCHATAY, SECOND IN THE GIANT SLALOM, WON THE OVERALL PRIZE FOR THE COMPETITION. CHRISTINE GOITSCHEL'S SISTER, MARIELLE, WHO IS CONSIDERED THE BEST WOMAN SKIER IN THE WORLD, WAS ON OF THOSE WHO WERE ELIMINATED. AFTER SKIING VERY WELL, SHE FELL DURING THE SPECIAL SLALOM EVEN ON THURSDAY AND THEN MISSED THE NASTY LEFT HAND TURN YESTERDAY.
