In 1952 the Olympic Winter Games were held in Stein Eriksen’s hometown of Oslo, Norway, the birthplace of modern skiing. At the age of 24 Stein was the first alpine skier from outside the Alps to earn a gold medal. Despite a near fall that would have resulted in disqualification, Stein won the gold in the men’s giant slalom by 1.9 seconds.
