Biography

At the 1991 World Junior Championships, Christian Mayer won a silver in Super-G and a bronze in the combined. The following winter he recorded his first top 10 placements in World Cup, which qualified him for the 1992 Albertville Olympics. That year Mayer also won Austrian titles in giant slalom and combined. Mayer competed at three Winter Olympics, winning bronze medals in giant slalom in 1994 and in combined at Nagano in 1998. He appeared four times at the World Championships – 1996, 1997, 1999, and 2003 – with one podium, a bronze medal in slalom at Vail/Beaver Creek in 1999.

Mayer was at his best in giant slalom, winning seven World Cup races, with six of those in GS. He had 23 World Cup podiums with 16 in giant slalom and in the 1993-94 season was the World Cup giant slalom champion. Health issues limited his effectiveness in the 2000s and he retired after the 2005-06 season.

Mayer then returned to school, studying sport management at the University of Klagenfurt. He began working with the Slovenian ski company Elan, and was active in development and testing for the Italian ski boot company Dalbello. He also organized ski events for companies and for children with his Kleine Zeitung Racing Camps.
