Biography

Egon ZIMMERMANN

Egon Zimmerman won two gold medals at the 1962 World Alpine Championships in Chamonix, a silver in the downhill and gold in the giant slalom. In 1964 he won the Olympic downhill in Innsbruck in front of his countrymen. He continued to compete internationally, but with less success, although he skied at the 1968 Winter Olympics. Zimmerman settled in his hometown of Lech am Arlberg where he ran a hotel for many years. He later developed multiple sclerosis, as did two other skiers from the 1964 Winter Olympics – Jimmy Heuga and Pepi Stiegler.
