Art Devlin Jumping Over Gary Cooper Vintage Ski Photo

Art Devlin jumping over Gary Cooper and his wife on Aspen Mountain.  All of them were regular visitors to Aspen. Art Devlin was an amazing Olympic ski jumper!

Some Info from his website, (www.artdevlins.com/HistoryofArtDevlin) include the following details:
"By age 17 Art earned a spot on the 1940 Olympic team. Back then Olympic teams were picked the year before. The `40 Olympics were to be in Japan. Unfortunately Japan was involved in WW2 and the games were not held. In 1944 there were no Olympics again because of the war. Art enlisted in the army air corp. in 1943 and flew as a bombardier on B-24’s.  He was discharged at the end of the war in 1946 with the rank Captain. After his discharge Art went back to ski jumping. In 1947 he made the 1948 Olympic team.  

In late 1947 at a meet in the Midwest, Art out jumped the landing hill and punched through the soft snow at the bottom.  The resulting fall damaged the ligaments and tendon in his right knee.  Back then knees were not as well-known as today and they put Art in a cast hoping things would heal.  Art had a local doctor cut a hole in the knee of the cast and competed in the 1948 games.  Art went on to compete in the 1952 – 1956 Olympics and made the team in 1959 for the 1960 Olympics.  

Due to his past injuries Art decided to give up his Olympic spot to the next in line.  The 1960 games were the first to be covered by television and Art went along with CBS as a color commentator. Art did Ski jumping commentary for the next 20 years until ABC Wide World of sports ended in 1981."
