    When Kjetil André Aamodt started his golden quest

    With eight Olympic podium places and four gold medals, no one has topped this achievement in Olympic Alpine skiing. From his first to his last title, Kjetil André Aamodt was a Super-G champion who turned expectations on their head. From the young 19-year-old unknown in Albertville 1992, to the 34-year-old outsider in Turin fourteen years later, he had to believe in himself when no one else did.

    On 8 February 1968 in Grenoble, Eugenio Monti’s great dream started to become a reality!

    In 1968, at the age of 40, with nine bobsleigh World Championship titles to his name and a reputation for fair play after his superb display of sportsmanship four years earlier in Innsbruck, Eugenio Monti triumphed twice on the Alpe d’Huez ice track, winning both the two-man and four-man events. Here we take a look back at a memorable week for one of the greatest bobsledders of all time. It all started on Thursday 8 February.

    On 4 February 1964, Thomas Köhler and Ortrun Enderlein became the first Olympic champions in luge

    After being granted Olympic status in 1954, luge made its official début 10 years later on the Igls ice track at the Innsbruck Games. The first singles titles were awarded on 4 February 1964 to two East German lugers competing for the Unified Team of Germany, Thomas Köhler and Ortrun Enderlein, who paved the way for Germany’s success on the Olympic stage – a success that has continued to this day.

    The unique achievement of sisters Marielle and Christine Goitschel at Innsbruck 1964

    On 3 February 1964 at the IX Olympic Winter Games in Innsbruck, the Goitschel sisters achieved something remarkable. After a Christine-Marielle one-two finish in the slalom, the two French skiers, born in 1944 and 1945 respectively, repeated the feat in the giant slalom, but in reverse order, with Marielle finishing ahead of Christine. Other brothers and sisters have secured one-two finishes at the Winter Games, but never twice in a row. Today, we celebrate the anniversary of a remarkable piece of history.

    Women’s monobob – a new Olympic discipline is making headway

    Olympic fans were able to watch solo bobsleigh at the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) Lillehammer 2016 and Lausanne 2020. The women’s event is now on the programme of the Winter Games in Beijing in 2022, and unlike other bobsleigh events, the athletes use a bob that is identical to those of all their competitors, giving pride of place to the driving, with the value of the equipment having no bearing.
