Andrea Mead Lawrence Pushing the Ski Racing Limits Ski Photo

Andrea Mead Lawrence alpine ski racing in the 1952 Winter Olympics is pushing all the 'Limits' to win 2 Gold Medals. She is also famous for both her stylish racing knickers & knickers socks, and her look of 'teeth gritting' determination.

In future years, people would ask how she felt at that moment and in the ensuing 1 minute 3.4 seconds, during which she beat the world’s best women on skis to win her second gold medal. “I was in a deep dark pool” she told family and friends. Later in an interview with The San Jose Mercury News in 2002 she said, “When I took off for the second run, I was released as the full force and energy of who I am as a person. “In a way, the second run was a perfect run. There are few times in our lives where we become the thing we’re doing.”

The New York Herald Tribune said that Lawrence’s dual victory “epitomizes the United States coming of age in international skiing competition.”
