Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Algernon Palmer-Tomkinson (born James Algernon Tomkinson; 3 April 1915 - 7 January 1952) was a British alpine skier who competed in the 1936 Winter Olympics and in the 1948 Winter Olympics. He was the grandson of James Tomkinson and the father of Charles Palmer-Tomkinson and Jeremy Palmer-Tomkinson. In 1936 he finished 14th in the alpine skiing combined event. Alpine skiing (or downhill skiing) is the sport of sliding down snow-covered hills on skis with fixed-heel bindings. Alpine skiing can be contrasted with skiing using free-heel bindings: Ski mountaineering and nordic skiing - such as cross-country; ski jumping; and Telemark.show more
