B. 1943-08-30, St Cloud, Alsace, France

20200.000041

Killy emulated the feat of Toni Sailer from 1956, but with far less conviction, winning the Slalom and Giant Slalom by less than a tenth of a second. The slalom victory, furthermore, came after some controversy. Austrian Karl Schranz was given a second chance after claiming he was hindered by an official, and finished with a better time. hours later, a jury ruled that his claim to a second race had been invalid, as he had missed a gate before being hindered.
Killy introduced the style of using the skis wider apart in the downhill, which gave more stability.
After Grenoble, Killy turned professional and has appeared in films.
He was World Champion at Downhill and Comnbined in 1966, and World Cup winner in every discipline in 1967, and in Giant Slalom and Overall in 1968.
He derives his name from Irish mercenaries (Kelly) in the Napoleonic Wars.
