Iran's first women's Olympic skier Marjan Kalhor has made her debut in the giant slalom and says she's happy with her performance, despite finishing last.

Kalhor completed the course 21.75 seconds slower than the fastest time posted by Austria's Elisabeth Goergl.

Kalhor, who wore a scarf under her helmet, says one of her goals was to show Muslim women they can achieve anything and is just happy to have competed .
