Freestyle skiing, specifically the moguls event, made its debut at the Olympic Winter Games in Albertville in 1992. The local fans hoped for a French victory and they were not disappointed, as their entrants finished first, second and fourth.

One week red wine and the next week white wine

The winner was the popular Edgar Grospiron, who recorded the fastest time of the final and the second best scores for turns and air. His supporters broke down the security fence lining the course and hoisted him on their shoulders. When asked if he followed a special diet while training, Grospiron answered, "Yes: one week red wine and the next week white wine." In 1994, he competed in the Lillehammer Games and earned a bronze medal in the moguls event.
