Frida Marie Hansdotter (born 13 December 1985) is a Swedish former World Cup alpine ski racer and Olympic champion. She competed in the technical events and specialised in slalom. Hansdotter's father Hans Johansson was also an alpine racer,[1] and she is a second cousin of Prince Daniel.

On 6 March 2019, she announced her retirement from alpine skiing following the 2018–2019 season.[2][3]

Career[edit]

Born in Västerås, Hansdotter represented Sweden at three Winter Olympics,[4] and at seven World Championships. She gained her first World Cup victory at Kranjska Gora in 2014, which followed eight runner-up finishes, the most in World Cup history without a win.[5] She was runner-up in the slalom season standings in 2014 and 2015, and won the title in 2016.[6]

Hansdotter has won three medals in the slalom at the World Championships: silver in 2015 and bronze in 2013 and 2017.[7]

At the 2018 Winter Olympics, she won the women's slalom.[8]
