    (November 17, 1935-August 24, 2009)
    Birth name is Anton Sailer
    Won three 1956 Olympic gold medals in Alpine skiing
    Won a total of four World Skiing Championship gold medals (1957 & 1959)
    Retired from skiing in 1959
    He thought it was fun to break a leg from skiing, painful, but fun.
    After the 1956 Olympics he cashed in on his fame by recording songs and starring in movie roles to show off his skiing.
    He signed so many endorsement deals after the 1956 Olympics, it ruined his amateur status and became ineligible to compete in the 1960 Olympics.
    In 2004 he withdrew from running for mayor of Kitzbuhel because he learned it would be a full-time job.
    He's the first alpine skier to win three Olympic gold medals in the same Olympics and it was when there were only three events.
    All three of his Olympic gold medals were won by huge margins of victory: 3.5 seconds in the downhill, 4 seconds in the slalom, and 6.2 seconds in the giant slalom.
    His skiing feats earned him the nickname the 'Blitz from Kitz.'
    His skiing prowess helped make the Austrian town of Kitzbuhel world-renowned.
