The Herminator Becomes an Olympic Legend

"Hermann Maier nicknamed ""The Herminator"", became an Olympic legend in 1998. Going down the mountain in a windy day at 70 mph, Maier lost control and flew off course, landing on his head, flipping and crashing through two fences. After what it seemed to be a near-fatal crash, Hermann Maier was only insignificantly bruised. Three days later, Maier dominated the men's downhill, claiming the Super G and Giant Slalom gold medals.
