Austrian Stamp on Elisabeth Görgl

\"\"“Elisabeth Görgl’s Courage brings Gold!“ was the headline in “Der Standard” after Lizz Görgl’s victory in the Super-G at the Ski World Championships in Garmisch-Partenkirchen last winter. A few days later this congenial sportswoman went one further and won a second gold medal in the downhill race. The whole of Austria celebrated with this new double world champion, whose twin achievements were the (provisional) highlight of her successful career. The new commemorative is the Austrian Post Office’s special way of congratulating her.
