It was the hometown of Francisco Fernández Ochoa (1950-2006), an alpine ski racer known for being the first (and only) Spaniard to win a gold medal at the Winter Olympics. He won the slalom in 1972 in Japan. Less than two weeks before his death from cancer, a statue was erected in his honor in Cercedilla.
