The details (from wikipedia)


Annelise Coberger (born 16 September 1971) is a New Zealand former alpine skier. Born in Christchurch, she became the first person from the Southern Hemisphere to win a medal at the Winter Olympics when she won silver in the slalom at Albertville in France in 1992. For this success, at the annual Halberg Awards she was awarded the title of New Zealand Sportsman of the Year. Coberger also competed at the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer but did not finish her first run of the slalom. Coberger remained the only Winter Olympic medalist from New Zealand for 26 years until Zoi Sadowski-Synnott won bronze in the women's big air at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

Her other victories include a single World Cup slalom. In the 1992-93 season, she was the runner-up in the Slalom World Cup with just 6 points behind the winner Vreni Schneider. Coberger finished competing at an international level a couple of years after her Olympic success. She then joined the New Zealand Police.
