About the Games

The 1968 Winter Olympics were held in Grenoble, France. A global audience, enjoying colour Television for the first time from a Winter Games, watched Norway topple the USSR as the most successful nation, winning six gold medals. French skier Jean-Claude Killy matched the 1956 triple gold alpine skiing feat of Austria's Tony Sailer by winning the downhill, slalom and giant slalom.
