Olympic Memories, the Kaiser, 1976, Innsbruck

I've never seen better. A recent fatality in Winter Sports in this Olympic competition reminds us we are flesh and blood, and objects are hard. Franz risked his life, let it all hang out, literally, and won by a little over .3 seconds.

Franz gets in to trouble early and often in this run, the near wipe out at 2:17 on this video was what stuck in my mind when I was watching it in 1976.
