Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In alpine skiing, a schuss or schussboom is a straight downhill run at high speed, contrasting with a slalom, mogul, or ski jumping.

Schuss was also the unofficial mascot of the 1968 Winter Olympics in Grenoble, France, featuring a cartoon character wearing skis. Ever since then, every Olympic Games has had a mascot (excluding the 1972 Winter Olympics in Sapporo, Japan). The character was seen on pins and small toys, though the character was never made into a plush.
