BONLIEU François (1937 - 1973) France / Alpine skiing
This 26 year-old skier was rewarded in 1964 when he won the gold medal at the 1964 Innsbruck games for the giant slalom. Throughout the Junior competition, he was already showing signs of an above-average talent, by finishing second in the world championships.After his victory at Innsbruck, he was picked up and carried by his fellow team members, a rare occurrence, as François Bonlieu was a reserved person, and was often excluded by the group.He was to meet a grisly end. He became a down-and-out and was murdered on the côte d'Azur only ten years after his Olympic triumph.
