Franz Klammer shaped the king of alpine disciplines like no other racer. The Carinthian, who will celebrate his 70th birthday this year, is the only one to have won the downhill five times. The 1976 Olympic champion also holds the downhill world record for individual World Cup victories (25).

Klammer celebrated his first Lauberhorn victory on January 11, 1975 with a lead of 3.54 seconds over the Italian Herbert Plank – to this day the largest difference between first and second place in the “belle étage” of skiing. The “Bauern-Bua” from Mooswald could lose another record today to Beat Feuz.
