Sandy Shellworth was US slalom champion in 1963. In 1966 and 1967 her career stalled when she broke a leg in both seasons. But in 1967 she won the Roche Cup downhill and the US title in the giant slalom, prior to her injury. Because of her injuries she was not originally named to the 1968 Winter Olympic team, but was moved up to the team when Robin Morning broke her leg a week before the Grenoble Olympics. Shellworth graduated from the University of Colorado in 1967 with a degree in arts and sciences. She continued to ski later in life, settling in Copper Mountain, Colorado, where she helped form the Over the Hill Gang.
