History of Alpine Skiing in FISU

A very popular snow discipline at the FISU World University Games, Alpine Skiing had its premiere at the event’s first edition in Chamonix, France, in 1960. Alpine skiing had previously been on the programme of the traditional International Winter Weeks which were held in 1951 in Bad Gastein, 1953 in Saint Moritz, 1955 in Yugoslavia, 1957 in Oberammergau and 1959 in Zell am See. From the first edition onwards, the following races have been organised for men and women: Slalom Special, Giant Slalom and Downhill. Afterwards, the combined results of these three disciplines have also been taken into consideration. The first medal of the 1960 WU was attributed to French skier Cécile Prince in the Slalom. For many years student athletes from Switzerland, USA, Italy, Czechoslovakia and Austria have dominated these World Students Games. Many participants and medallists of the FISU Games also took part in the OWG, as for example: Naoki YVASA (JPN), Martin VRABLIK (CZE) or Filip TREJBAL (CZE).
