Wyoming native competesin third Olympic Games

Wyoming native Resi Stiegler is scheduled to compete Wednesday at the Olympics in Pyeonchang, South Korea.

The slalom skier is competing in her third Olympic Games.

When she competes on Wednesday she will have passed father Pepi in appearances at the Winter Games.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports that Pepi Stiegler dominated the 1960 and 1964 Olympics, racking up a gold, silver and bronze over five starts in three disciplines. But he did not compete in three Olympics like his daughter.

From an early age Resi displayed the characteristics that made her father the best in the world.

Family, friends and coaches say it’s her spirited personality that has kept her at the top of the sport for so long. She has overcome injuries that derailed her career.
