Among the skiing events in the Winter Olympics, the United States has done especially well in alpine skiing, which comprises the four separate disciplines of super-G, downhill, giant slalom, and combined. The first alpine event occurred in 1936. Since that time, 13 American men and women have won multiple medals, with several winning at least two medals in a single Olympics.
On the men’s side, Bode Miller is the most-decorated skier in terms of total medals, with five (one gold, three silver, and two bronze), including one in each discipline. Ted Ligety, however, is the only American male skier to have won two Olympic gold medals, one each in combined and giant slalom. The three other males to win multiple medals are Andrew Weibrecht, Phil Mahre, and Tommy Moe.
On the women’s side, Julia Mancuso and Lindsey Vonn, both of whom are still competing, have decorated careers at the Olympics and World Cup. Mancuso has four Olympic medals, including a gold in giant slalom at the 2006 Olympics, while Vonn won gold in the downhill event at the 2010 Olympics. Andrea Mead Lawrence, who competed in three Olympics from 1948 to 1956, won the slalom and giant slalom events in 1952. Other women to win multiple medals include Gretchen Fraser, Picabo Street, Diann Roffe, Penny Pitous, and Jean Saubert.
