Biography

On 17 January 1988 Hubert Strolz won the combined World Cup race at Bad Kleinekirchheim, Austria. It would remain his only World Cup victory in a career that saw him on the podium 33 times, 18 times in giant slalom. Still, in the 1987-88 season Strolz won the combined seasonal World Cup, placing second that year in the giant slalom World Cup, and third in the overall.

Strolz competed at three Winter Olympics (1984-92), winning two medals at Calgary in 1988, with a silver in GS and a bronze in combined. He also appeared at five World Championships (1982, 1987, 1989, 1991, 1993), but never made the podium at Worlds. After failing to make the 1994 Austrian Olympic team, Strolz retired at the end of the 1993-94 season, after 14 years on the World Cup circuit. In retirement he became director of the ski and snowboard school in his hometown of Warth am Arlberg. In 1996 Strolz was given a gold medal for services to the Republic of Austria.
