The 100th gold medal for the ÖSV at the World Ski Championships is probably one of the strangest, if not the strangest, in history.

Less than half an hour after the end of the race, Katharina Liensberger’s silver was awarded gold in the parallel competition. The Vorarlberg native won the anniversary medal for the Austrian ski association. Eternal medal table >>>

It is the 41st gold medal for the ÖSV women. The men won 56 gold medals. There are also three in team competitions.
