Henri Oreiller (December 5, 1925 - October 7, 1962) was a French alpine ski racer. He won two gold medals and a bronze medal in skiing at the 1948 Olympic Games, becoming the most successful athlete there. He was born in Paris, the son of L on Oreiller, of Italian origin, and Marguerite Favre, from Savoie. His parents lived in Paris and frequented Val d'Is re for holidays. Nicknamed the "Parisian of Val d'Is re" or the "madman of downhill," he was the first Olympic downhill champion in 1948 at Saint-Moritz, with a record margin of 4 seconds over the runner-up. He also took the gold medal in the combined event, and the bronze medal in the special slalom.show more
