Skier of the Decade: Jean-Claude Killy, 1960s

Skier of the Decade: Jean-Claude Killy, 1960s

No modern athlete may ever duplicate Killy’s dominance of a sport.

Among alpine racers of the past 50 years, none—not even Hermann Maier nor Ingemar Stenmark—has matched the record set by Jean-Claude Killy. In fact, no modern athlete may ever duplicate Killy’s dominance of a sport. The Frenchman won more than 70 percent of all the races on the 1967 World Cup circuit. In a single winter, he won all five World Cup downhills, including the perilously steep Hahnenkamm, three slalom races and four of five giant slaloms. He also won all three alpine skiing gold medals at the 1968 Games.
