Biography

Putzi Frandl competed at two Winter Olympics for Austria, winning a silver medal in the giant slalom at Cortina in 1956. She looked for more at the 1960 Squaw Valley Olympics, but in a run only a few days before the Olympics opened, she caught a tip on a tree limb just under the surface and injured her leg. Although she raced at Squaw, the best she could do was 16th in the slalom. At the 1958 World Championships in Bad Gastein Frandl won a silver in slalom and a bronze in the combined. She ended her competitive career after the 1960 Winter Olympics and began work as a ski instructor in Austria. One of her pupils was US Air Force officer Patrick Crotty and they eventually married. The Crottys later moved to the USA where she taught at Mad River and Copper Mountain. She became quite a good regional tennis player, and the family eventually settled in Colorado.
