    Background: THE TALL FRENCH WONDER SKIER MARIELLE GOITSCHEL WON THE GIANT SLALOM ON THURSDAY -- AND THUS THE WOMEN'S COMBINED TITLE -- AT THE WORLD ALPINE SKI CHAMPIONSHIPS AT PORTILLO IN CHILE.

    MLLE GOITSCHEL, WHO LIVES AT VAL D'ISERE HIGH IN THE FRENCH ALPS, HAD ALREADY BEEN RUNNER-UP IN THE SLALOM AND THE DOWNHILL EVENTS. SHE IS THE FIRST TO HAVE WON THE COMBINED TITLE THREE TIMES. THE PREVIOUS OCCASIONS WERE IN 1962 AND 1964.

    THOUGH SHE WILL NOT BE 21 UNTIL NEXT MONTH, SHE WON THE GOLD MEDAL IN THE GIANT SLALOM AT INNSBRUK IN 1964.

    STARTING EXCEPTIONALLY FAST, AND SKIING WITH BOTH CAUTION AND COOL EFFICIENCY, HER TURNS SHOWED ALERT ANTICIPATION.

    MLLE GOITSCHEL'S TIME WAS 1.17 SECS. BETTER THAN THE AUSTRIAN RUNNER-UP IN THE GIANT SLALOM, HEIDI ZIMMERMANN. IN THIRD PLACE WAS ANOTHER FRENCH GIRL, FLORENCE STEURER -- 1.11 SECS FURTHER BEHIND.

    A SECRETARY FROM OTTAWA, NANCY GREENE, GAINED FOURTH PLACE FOR CANADA.

    THE SKI RUNS AT PORTILLO ARE AT 9,800 FT (2,900 METRES) AND MOSTLY THE SNOW IS DRY, POWDERY AND WITH LITTLE LIKELIHOOD OF ICING UP.
