Viktoria Rebensburg (born 4 October 1989) is a German alpine ski racer and the 2010 Olympic gold medalist in the giant slalom.[1]

After finishing 28th in the Olympic super-G, she won gold in the giant slalom, her first victory in international competition.[2][3] Her previous best finish was second place at a GS a month earlier, her only World Cup podium.[4]

Ten months later Rebensberg won her first World Cup race in October 2010, a giant slalom in the season opener at Sölden, Austria. She won two more GS races during the 2011 season and took the giant slalom season title; she finished eighth in the overall standings, won by teammate Maria Riesch. In the 2012 season she won five races – four GS and one super-G – and went on to defend the GS season title.
