Bill D’Amico was one of the Lake Placid areas best athletes. He skiied, speed skated, played football and was a one-handicap golfer. But he was best known as a sledder. D’Amico is one of only three Americans (Stan Benham, Jim Atkinson) to have slid on two non-Olympic world championship teams, this coming in 1949 and 1950. In addition, he was on the winning teams at the 1941 AAU 4-man event and the 1942 North American 2-man championship. D’Amico was a veteran of World War II, and operated the Northwoods Inn in Lake Placid, and later the Chicken Coop Restaurant.
