Ski Legend: Andrea Mead Lawrence
January 27, 1952 Press Photo: THE WINNER RELAXES – Andrea Mead Lawrence of Rutland, Vt., is shown taking things easy after posting another victory in a tuneup ski match for the Olympics. The famed woman skier removes her goggles after winning the giant slalom at Bad Gastein, Austria. She competed against the top women skiers from six nations.
Contrary to the description in the photo caption, I do not think Andrea Mead Lawrence is “taking things easy” — all I see is the look of the fiercely intense competitor. Just weeks later, she went on to win two gold medals at the Winter Games in Oslo, Norway – the first and only American to win twice in a single Olympics.
It goes without saying that Andrea’s confidence brought the gorgeous US Ski Team uniform to life with mad style (and a remarkably tiny waist). And let’s not forget the race sponsor, Pez – of candy dispenser fame – is an Austrian brand founded in Vienna.
