Schranz and Sapporo : the "hurt" still runs deep / Volker Kluge

Kluge, Volker

Austrian skiing legend Karl Schranz, enjoyed a career of over 17 years but chased Olympic gold. When the 2020 Olympic marathon and race walking competitions were moved from Tokyo to Sapporo, it brought back memories of the 1972 Winter Games, including the “Schranz case” in particular. This was because he was the only athlete to be excluded from the International Olympic Committee due to a violation of Rule 26. In this article you can read how Schranz feels 48 years later.
