Forty years ago, here in Milan, Renate Hansluvka made her debut as a skier in the World Championships winning a bronze medal in the Women's jumping event to go with respectable fourth and fifth place finishes in slalom, tricks and overall. She went on to compete in four World tournaments as a member of the Austrian team taking home a total of seven medals including consecutive gold-medal performances in the Women's jumping event in 1961 and 1963 and medals in all three events and overall in the latter year.
In the European championships from 1959 to 1966, Renate accumulated 20 medals, including five gold medals in jumping, two in slalom, and three in overall.
I am pleased to announce the induction into the International Hall of Fame of the first European woman to win the World jumping title: Renate Hansluvka.
