Gustav Oehrli

Gustav ( " Gusti ") Oehrli ( born 2 May 1962 in Gstaad ) is a retired Swiss ski racer. He specializes in the disciplines of downhill and combined.


Oehrlis first major success was winning the downhill silver medal at the European Junior Championships in 1980. During the season 1980/81, the trained masons came in the European Cup for use. He finished second in the downhill score to second place behind the Austrian Bernhard Flaschberger and third place in the overall standings. In the following winter he moved to the World Cup. The first World Cup points he won on December 21, 1981 as the 11th departure of Crans -Montana.

In the season 1981/82 Oehrli scored four placings in the top ten, with a fourth place in Whistler as the best result. In the 1982 World Cup in Schladming, he finished seventh in the combination. In the next two winters he binned to a single time in the points. Only in the 1985/86 season he was able to return to its previous performance. There he succeeded six top - 10 finishes. Among them were two third places in combinations and a second place in the departure of Morzine.

This level reached Oehrli in the future only to some extent. In 1988 he went again into the top ten, four times in 1989. More podiums but remained out because of the strong internal team competition and qualifications to the world championships or Olympic Games. During the 1989/90 season Oehrli resigned. Today he is co-owner of the Sports Business Edelweiss Sports in Gstaad. He is also active in his home Lauenen as president of the Ski Club.
