    Well I had to crowd source a little to get the answer. I was racing on the womens pro tour at the time, but I remember it was early 80’s. A friend told me it was 1983 and that the first SG at the olympics was in Calgary in 1988. I checked, and the top American woman was Edith Thys in 9th. And apparently the top American male was…… Tiger Shaw in 18th.
