OREILLER Henri (1925-1962) France / Alpine skiing
This French skier, whose name means "pillow', was hardly one to rest on his laurels.Oreiller was the first French skier to win a gold medal, at Saint Moritz in 1948, where he distinguished himself in the downhill and combined events, the latter on a pair of old skis, because his talismanic own skis on which he won the downhill event had just been stolen. He earned a third, bronze, medal for the slalom.He loved speed, and died a few years later driving a racing car on the Montlhéry circuit.
