Tentori, a 23-year-old student from Milan University, completed the course in a time of 1 minute 23.74 seconds to win his country's first medal of the games, with Oliveras settling for silver at 0.01 seconds in arrears. Switzerland's Sandro Boner secured the bronze medal with a time of 1:24.23.
"It was a really difficult course because of varied gradients and hidden slalom doors," said a nevertheless ecstatic Tentori, who won the gold medal despite breaking a ski pole in the process.
"The trick was to ski with utmost concentration but also a little spark of madness," said silver medallist Oliveras, who overcame a serious illness last year to be in shape for the 27th edition of the bi-annual student winter games.

The curling group games continued on Friday with, most notably, Sweden's men edging Switzerland 9-7 in a real nail-biting encounter, and Great Britain's women - one of the favourites - beating Canada 7-4.
