I believe the last skier to win 3 golds at an Olympics is Jean Claude Killy.
Going back to ski jumping. There was a jump at Bear Mountain State Park just north of NYC. They had jumping of Saturday afternoons. The jump was just outside the Bear Mountain Inn. As a child, my father would take me skiing at Silvermine at Bear Mountain in the morning and we would watch the jumps in the afternoon. This was the mid to late 50’s. I did see Art Devlin jump. Art went on to be a commentator for ABC sports.
About 5 years ago, I met one of Art’s daughters. When I told her that I had seen her father jump, she told me I was the first person that told her I had seen him jump.
I truly enjoy your column.
