Biography

A specialist in the technical events, Didier Bouvet competed at the 1984 and 1988 Winter Olympics, winning a slalom bronze medal at Sarajevo in 1984, which was considered a major surprise. He was on the World Cup circuit from 1981-90, winning one slalom World Cup race, with a best overall seasonal finish of 25th in 1985-86, placing 7th that season in slalom. He had three podiums in World Cup races, also finishing second and third once each. Bouvet’s best placement in an Arlberg-Kandahar event was seventh in a slalom at Sankt Anton in 1986. He was a six-time French champion, five times in slalom and once in giant slalom. His career was interrupted in early 1985 by a severe spinal injury, but he fully recovered. After his ski career retirement in 1990, Bouvet became a publisher of the sport magazine Abondance. He had earlier worked as a customs officer.
