Biography

Rosi Mittermaier had a long career in international skiing, winning 10 individual World Cup races between 1969 and 1976. In 1976, she was the world champion in Alpine combined and led the overall World Cup, although she did not lead in any of the individual disciplines. Mittermaier’s greatest fame came at the 1976 Olympic Winter Games when she won the slalom and downhill. With the giant slalom still to come, she had a chance to equal the feats of Toni Sailer and Jean-Claude Killy by winning all three available Alpine ski events. However, in the giant slalom, she finished second, losing out by 12/100th’s of a second to Canada’s Kathy Kreiner. Mittermaier later married Christian Neureuther, another German Olympic skier.
