Transcript of Hanni Wenzel
West Germany, but when Hanni was one-year-old she and her family moved to the tiny country of Liechtenstein. Hanni was an alpine skier competing at the national level from 1972-1984. At the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York, she won gold medals in the slalom and giant slalom, and just missed out on a sweep by taking the silver in the downhill. Hanni Wenzel retired with two Olympic titles, four World titles, two overall World Cups, three discipline World Cups plus three combined titles, and 33 World Cup victories.
Hanni Wenzel was born Hannelore Wenzel, but soon took on the nickname, Hanni. She also has a brother who also competed in world-class skiing
events. She was also quite short, standing "tall" at 5 ft. 5 in. Before Hanni became a world-class skier, she first had to learn and practice how to ski. Even being born a natural, she practiced for years working on becoming a better skier. And after retiring from her professional career, she and her husband took on the challenge of starting a company. Their company still exists today, and the company acts as an agency for sporting events organizers who wish to find corporate sponsors for their events. their company has helped organize the Hahnenkamm downhill event in Kitzbühel, Austria.
