GRIMALDI Prince Albert, Monaco / Bobsled
The little Principality, an enclave in French territory, had never been able to get a team worthy of the name together for the games. And yet many international sportsmen and women profit from this tax-haven. The Chairman of the National Organizing committee, Prince Albert, a sportsman himself, decided to take up the challenge. He took part in the bobsledding event twice, in Calgary in 1988 and again in Albertville in 1992. Despite laudable efforts, he had to be content with coming in lower than 15th place each time.
