Ragnhild Mowinckel was born on September 12, 1992, in Molde, Møre og Romsdal. Throughout her career, she shown an incredible combination of talent, tenacity, and resilience, leaving her mark on the history of Norwegian alpine skiing. Mowinckel’s career, as a proud member of the SK Rival club, is a monument to the highs of success, the difficulties posed by injury, and the victorious return to the slopes.
In 2012, she achieved a noteworthy achievement by winning gold in the giant slalom and super combined events at the Junior World Championships. Her excellent collection also included a bronze in super-G. Her World Cup debut came in January of the same year, after her early success, when she successfully handled the difficult slalom race in Zagreb.
Her rise continued when she earned her first World Cup point in Schladming in March when she placed a very respectable 25th in the giant slalom. More progress was made in December 2012 at St. Moritz, where they placed 16th in the super combined and 19th in the super-G. Her flexibility was on display at the 2012 World Championships, where she placed 17th in the super combined, 27th in the downhill, and 21st in the giant slalom.
Still, Mowinckel’s real breakthrough came during the 2018 campaign. She announced her emergence as a formidable force in alpine skiing by achieving her first podium finishes, taking third in the super-G at Val d’Isère and second in the giant slalom at Kronplatz. She stunned the skiing world by winning two silver medals in giant slalom and downhill at the Winter Olympics in Korea, which was the apex of her achievement. Her outstanding performance also featured a solid 13th position in super-G and a fourth-place result in combined.
At the 2018 World Cup, Mowinckel won her maiden World Cup in the giant slalom at Ofterschwang, surpassing all of her competitors including the national favorite, Viktoria Rebensburg. She sustained two catastrophic anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in 2019, one in March and the other in the fall which put a major dent in her fast ascent. Her physical and mental resilience were put to the test as a result of her injuries, which kept her out of the 2020 season.
Mowinckel’s unwavering determination was evident with her victorious comeback to the World Cup in the 2021 season. She continued to go closer to the top of her sport in spite of the obstacles. Securing a second-place result in the super-G at Val d’Isère in December 2021 was a crucial milestone in her return.
The giant slalom, the first event of the 2022 Winter Olympics, was the pinnacle of Mowinckel’s tenacity and willpower. Reiterating her standing as a strong competitor in alpine skiing, she achieved her best result of the season by taking a good fifth place.
