THE HUNGARIAN SKI ASSOCIATION
On 15 July 1913 fourteen ski clubs formed the Hungarian Ski Association, which became a member of the International Ski Commission in 1914. The Ski Association includes a range of five sports: alpine skiing, cross country skiing, ski jumping, freestyle skiing and biathlon.
The Alpine Ski Team counts a total of 350 athletes.
In the last years, many excellent results were accomplished. In the 2014 Winter Olympics, the alpine skier, Edit Miklos, finished 16th in the Super Combined and 7th in Downhill, achieving the country’s best result ever in any Olympic alpine race. The result also made her the top Hungarian sportswoman at the games. She gained her, and Hungary’s, first World Cup podium placing third in Downhill at St. Moritz in January 2015 and repeated the same success in 2016 at Lake Louise. At the 2015 World Championships in Beever Creek (USA), she finished 13th in Downhill, achieving the country’s best result in any World Championships alpine race.
Another alpine skier has been racing in World Cup in Hungarian colors since 2014: Samsal Dalibor. He gained a 22nd place in Slalom at Wengen in January 2016.
The President of the Ski Association is Ms. Klara Kaszo.
