Why We Ski: Klammer at Innsbruck

Why We Ski: Klammer at Innsbruck

Features
posted: 02/02/2004

Before there was Bode, there was "the Kaiser"—the Austrian downhiller who defined high-speed risk-taking in one spectacular run at the 1976 Olympics. Running last among first-seed competitors on the treacherous Patscherkofel course, Klammer pushed beyond sanity on a rutted track, egged to the edge of disaster at every turn by 50,000 frenzied countrymen. Every time it appeared he'd crash, he pulled it out. He landed the last air on his tails but held on and rocketed across the finish .33 seconds ahead of the great Bernhard Russi. We can all admire Klammer's style, if not duplicate it.
