Biography

Alpine skier Pamela Behr, daughter of seven-time German champion Sepp Behr, was mainly a slalom specialist. She started her active career at the age of four and won the slalom silver medal at the 1978 Worlds at Garmisch-Partenkirchen as her greatest moment. In her triple Olympic participations between 1972 and 1980 she also claimed her best results in slalom, finishing fifth in 1976 at Innsbruck and sixth in 1972 at Sapporo. Between 1971 and 1979 Behr won seven West German titles.

Behr later married FIS (Fédération Internationale de Ski) Marketing and Communication Director Christian Knuth. The couple lived in Bregenz (Austria). She then also became a technical delegate within the FIS.
