- 1960 Gold medal with delay: When Roger did finish the Giant Slalom Race on February 22nd he was called as the second-placed behind Josef Stiegler. There was an error in the time-clocking. After maybe 15 minutes, the time-clocking was corrected - Roger was 0.4 sec. better than Stiegler.
After a brief career as a professional racer in the early 1960s, Staub became ski school director at the fledgling Vail resort in Colorado. He also had a ski school in Arosa and sporting goods interests in Switzerland.
