Club name Peer Gynt Alpinklubb [Norway]
Coach Christian Mitter [national], AUT (, 21 Jun 2017)
Injuries His 2012/13 season was ended early after he tore the anterior cruciate ligament [ACL] in his knee. He sustained the injury in a crash at the 2013 World Championships in Schladming, Austria. He returned to training in August 2013. (, 2016;, 14 Feb 2014;, 15 Jul 2013)

He broke his thumb at the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Turin, which ruled him out for the rest of that season. (, 17 Mar 2012)

In September 2006 he suffered a bulging disc in his back that kept him out of competition for 12 months. (, 17 Mar 2012)
Start He began skiing at age three in Vinstra, Norway. (, 17 Mar 2012)
Reason His parents moved to Vinstra, an hour north of Lillehammer, Norway, where they were active in skiing. At age seven he got his first alpine skis, as a gift from his uncle and aunt. At the same time his father set up the Peer Gynt Alpine Club. (, 17 Mar 2012)
Memorable Achievement Winning silver in giant slalom at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, and claiming gold in super G and bronze in downhill at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi. (, 2016)
Hero Norwegian alpine skier Lasse Kjus. (NOC Media Guide, 27 Jan 2014)
Philosophy "I am very privileged to be able to pursue my dreams in a hobby that has turned into a full-time job, but the journey isn't over and the aim of winning more persists." (, 2016)
Additional information General
After winning silver in giant slalom at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, he claimed the gold medal in super G and bronze in downhill at the 2014 Games in Sochi to achieve the full Olympic medal set in alpine skiing. His success was made even more special as he had torn the anterior cruciate ligament [ACL] in his knee in the early part of 2013. "When I look back at the 2013/14 season, I see my achievements as a direct result of being stubborn, working hard - and most importantly, never giving up." (, 2016; ONS, 16 Feb 2014)
