    Jean-Claude Killy sweeps the board - Alpine Skiing

    After he won 12 of 16 World Cup races during the 1966-1967 season, French sports fans hoped that Jean-Claude Killy would sweep all three Alpine skiing events when the Olympic Winter Games were staged in Grenoble, France, in 1968.   Killy began by winning gold in the downhill, slashing across the finish line a mere eight hundredths of a second ahead of French teammate Guy Périllat. Then when, for the first time, the giant slalom contest was decided by a combination of two runs rather than a single run, Killy again won gold -- by more than two seconds.   Killy needed the slalom to complete the Alpine sweep. His second run kept him in the lead until the turn of his closest rival, Karl Schranz. But as Schranz sped through the fog, he skidded to a halt, claiming that someone crossed his path. Granted a rerun, Schranz beat Killy's time and was declared the winner. But a Jury of Appeal disqualified him and awarded gold to Killy.   Killy later served as co-president of the Organising Committee of the 1992 Albertville Olympic Winter Games and became an IOC member in 1995.

    The Magnificent Seven - USA Women’s Gymnastics

    Shannon Miller, Dominique Moceanu, Dominique Dawes, Kerri Strug, Amy Chow, Amanda Borden and Jaycie Phelps; or as they became known, the Magnificent Seven.   As the home team, the United States were a definite contender for the Olympic gold medal; however the competition from Romania and Russia was expected to be fierce.   Through Kerri Strug’s vault single-footed landing - as she had injured her ankle during her first vault attempt - team USA achieved Olympic glory. It was the perfect dramatic finish for a team that also took its place in fan’s hearts and memories.   At the Atlanta 1996 Olympic Games, the Magnificent Seven became the first ever women’s gymnastics team to win the Olympic gold medal for the USA.
