He eventually competed in four Winter Olympics (1988, 1992, 1994, 1998), winning three Olympic medals – gold in 1988 super-G, silver in 1992 downhill, and bronze in 1988 downhill. His only podium finish at the World Championships was a bronze in the 1991 super-G. Piccard won two French national titles, the super-G in 1987 and giant slalom in 1993. On the World Cup circuit he won four events – one downhill, two super-G’s, and one giant slalom, with his best overall seasonal finish being seventh in 1987-88. In the seasonal event World Cup standings, Piccard finished third four times – in super-G in 1987-88 and 1988-89, in the giant slalom in 1993-94, and in the combined in 1987-88.
