The whole Australian Team had reason to celebrate

The Australian Team celebrates its performance at the 1994 Lillehammer Winter Games. With just six athletes in one discipline – alpine skiing – the Australian Team finished fifth in alpine skiing and ninth on the overall medal tally at the Games, its best winter performance to that time. Four of the Australian skiers won medals, with Michael Milton (one) and Michael Norton (two) picking up gold medals. Standing, from left to right: Steve Graham (coach), David Howells (technician), Michael Milton, James Patterson, Craig Windham, Alan Dean (technician), Dean Sheppard (assistant coach), Fiona Barnsdall/Mance (physiotherapist). Sitting, left to right: Rod Hacon, Michael Norton, David Munk.

Although Windham had a disappointing Games personally, the Team produced Australia’s best winter performance to that time, finishing fifth in the alpine skiing medal tally and ninth overall for the Games, with a team of just six athletes.

James Paterson won two medals also

James Patterson won two medals at the 1994 Lillehammer Winter Paralympics – silver in the downhill and bronze in the giant slalom.  His performances helped Australia to a haul of nine medals and 9th on the medal tally for the Games, despite sending a team of just six athletes, all in the single discipline of alpine skiing. At his second and final Games in 1998, Patterson was Australia’s only medalist.

Michael Norton signals: “I got two golds”

Michael Norton won two gold medals for Australia at the 1994 Lillehammer Winter Games, becoming Australia’s first ever multiple winter gold medalist at a single Games. His ‘all out’ style meant that he recorded ‘DNFs’ (did not finish) in the downhill and slalom events, but won gold in the giant slalom and super-G events.

Michael Norton won two gold medals in four events at the 1994 Lillehammer Winter Paralympics. His ‘all out’ style resulted in two gold medals and two ‘DNFs’ (did not finish). He is pictured after the medal ceremony, with the other Super-G medalists – Michael McDougall (USA, silver) and Williams Bowness (USA, bronze).

Michael Norton signals: “I got two golds”

Michael Norton won two gold medals for Australia at the 1994 Lillehammer Winter Games, becoming Australia’s first ever multiple winter gold medalist at a single Games.
