It took years for women to earn the right to ski jump in the Winter Games and just a day to crown their first Olympic champion. At the debut of the women’s normal hill ski jump, Carina Vogt of Germany won the first gold medal, outscoring Daniela Iraschko-Stolz of Austria, who won the silver medal, and Coline Mattel of France, who finished third. The victory came after a battle that included a legal challenge that all but shamed the International Olympic Committee into allowing women into an event that has been part of the Winter Games since 1924.
