Albert Giger attended his first Winter Olympics in 1968, where he competed in cross-country skiing’s 15 km event and placed 30th in a field of 76 participants. He improved to 14th at the 1972 edition, but won bronze in the 4x10 km relay alongside Edi Hauser and Alois and Fredel Kälin, which was Switzerland’s first Olympic medal in the cross-country skiing relay. Giger returned for the 1976 Winter Olympics, finishing 7th in the 30 km and 11th in the 15 km, but retired in the late 1970s prior to the 1980 edition. He won Switzerland’s prestigious Engadin Skimarathon five times (1971, 1973, 1976-78), a record for the men’s competition, and later worked as a ski instructor and coach in St. Moritz.
