The first decentralized games in Grenoble
The expression "The Games of distance" was first used in 1968. The Games in Grenoble, France broke with the tradition of having as many events in one place. Instead, the Games were held across five further places, up to 65 kilometers away. In Val d'Isere, "only" 30km away from Grenoble, local hero Jean Claude Killy (pictured above) won gold in the downhill.
