Olympic slalom skier who won the gold medal at the Super-G event of 2010 Winter games in Vancouver.
In 2007 during a training run, a bad crash left him with several broken bones and a severe cut on his abdomen, but he came back in 2009 and won the gold medal at the World Championships.
Through an international career that began in 2002, he won eight World championships and three Olympic medals.
He was once reportedly dating Julia Mancuso, an American alpine skier and the gold medal winner at the 2006 games in Turin.
Long before his gold medal wins, or even his birth, Babe Didrikson Zaharias was earning gold medals for Norway in winter sports events.
