The Olympic Games are a time for the best of the best to show off their skills. But who is the best Olympic skier?
Kjetil Jansrud of Norway has won six medals in his career, three of which are gold. He’s also won five World Cup races and seven Overall titles. His biggest win came at the 2014 Sochi Olympics when he won both the slalom and super combined.
Lindsey Vonn of the United States also comes into PyeongChang with a lot of experience under her belt. She’s won four Overall titles, two World Championships and one gold medal at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics in downhill skiing. She’s also been named Female Athlete of the Year by The Associated Press an incredible four times since 2008, including 2017-18 season.
Austrian Marcel Hirscher earned his first Olympic medal in 2010 at Vancouver (bronze), but it wasn’t until 2014 when he won his first gold medal in slalom at Sochi that he became known as one of the greatest skiers ever to compete at an Olympics. Since then, Hirscher has added another two Olympic medals and another four Overall titles to his resume, giving him six total World Cup titles in men’s slalom and giant.
