Franz Klammer: Greatest Olympic Downhill Ever?

The Winter Olympics are upon us, Last night I was watching trial runs of this year's Olympic downhill, and I couldn't help but think back to Franz Klammer's incredible downhill run at the 1976 Winter Olympics in Innsbruck, Austria.

Watching it in retrospect, knowing the outcome, takes away, somewhat, from what an amazing run it was. And although video quality in 1976 wasn't what it is today, even with the grainy resolution, I still think it's the most electrifying run I've ever seen.
