The first great German alpine skier, Christl Cranz, brother of Rudi Cranz, dominated the sport in the 1930s. She won twelve world titles, taking all three available titles at the 1937 and 1939 World Championships, while taking two gold medals and a silver at the 1934, 1935 and 1938 editions. Cranz did not compete in the 1936 championships, although she did win the inaugural Olympic title that season. In 1941, Cranz won three more world titles, but this tournament in Cortina d'Ampezzo was declared unofficial by the FIS in 1946, citing lack of Allied participation (only four nations took part)....
