On Sunday, Arif finished 45th out of 89 participants in the men's giant slalom event. The Jammu and Kashmir-born Indian skier finished in 2:47.24 - 37.89 seconds off the first place. 
With the 45th place finish at the Yanqing National Alpine Skiing Centre, Arif now holds the record for the best finish by an Indian in men's giant slalom at the Winter Olympics. Notably, in the slalom the course and distance between two successive gates are much smaller than in giant slalom, making it a much faster and more precise sport. Arif was India's sole representative at the Beijing 2022.
