St Moritz 1948
After a 12-year break, caused by World War II, these Games were named the "Games of Renewal”, 669 athletes from 22 nations took part. Norway and Sweden led the medal table with four golds each.
Britain sent sixty athletes to Switzerland, the largest British contingent at any Winter Games to date; team won two bronze medals. The first belonged to 18 year old figure-skater Jeanette Altwegg and the second John Crammond for men's individual skeleton. St. Moritz would provide the springboard to even greater success for Altwegg four years later.
