It is sensational!! At the Winter Olympics in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Toni Sailer, just 21 years old, is the first person in history to win all three competitions: downhill, slalom and giant slalom.
With three Olympic golds, seven world championships and 170 victories, the trained glazier and plumber is world-renowned as the most successful ski athlete of all time.
After his 23rd birthday, Toni Sailer stopped participating in professional sports and instead began a career as an actor and singer. Despite his successes, he dedicated his life to skiing until his dying day. He died on 24th August 2009.
