Harald Strand Nilsen
|Men's alpine skiing|
Born in Gjøvik, the all-rounder won no World Cup Races during his active career, but gained several podiums, especially in the 1994/95 season, where he ended third in the Giant Slalom World Cup behind Alberto Tomba and Jure Kosir. The 13th place in the overall Alpine skiing World Cup was to become his best classification in any year.
In the following years Strand Nilsen specialised in slalom and regularly managed to be among the top 15 in World Cup races. However, he would never quite tie in with his earlier successes of 1994 and 1995.
He retired at the end of the 2002/03 season.
Strand Nilsen is today situated in his hometown Gjøvik, Norway.
