Alpine skiing: from Emile Allais in 1937 to Alexis Pinturault, all the French world champions in pictures


Thirteen French skiers have been on the top step of the podium at the Alpine Skiing World Championships for almost a century. Back in pictures on these tricolor coronations.

Alexis Pinturault gave France its first victory on Tuesday at the Alpine Skiing World Championships organized in Courchevel-Méribel.

Four years after his coronation at Are, the Frenchman did it again in the combined, at 31, and in front of his audience.

A consecration which allows France to consolidate its third place in the concert of the most successful nations at the Worlds behind Austria (302 medals including 101 gold) and Switzerland (204 medals including 69 gold).

The Blues collected 136 charms in total, including 47 in gold.

25 of these titles (including six for Jean-Claude Killy alone) were obtained by 13 French skiers.
