X Olympic Winter Games


Of the nearly 1,200 athletes who met in Grenoble, France in 1968 for the X Olympic Winter Games, 70 were Canadians. For Nancy Greene, it was her third Olympic Winter Games. In Squaw Valley in 1960, she finished 22nd in the downhill, and in Innsbruck in 1964 she finished 7th in the downhill and 15th in the slalom. Inspired by her 1967 World Cup title, Nancy took gold in the giant slalom and silver in the slalom, attacking each course with a ferocity that earned her the nickname “The Tiger”. Frenchman Jean-Claude Killy managed a grand slam by winning the downhill, giant slalom and special slalom events.

Canada’s hockey team finished the Olympic tournament with five wins and two losses, winning a bronze medal.
