Personal information
Born 1967

Paul Accola (born February 20, 1967 in Davos) is a Swiss former Alpine skier. He came top in the overall World Cup in 1992, and won a total of four medals at the Winter Olympics and World Championships in the combined event.

By the end of his career he won seven world cup victories and was on the podium 26 times last time in 2000. In 2002 Accola suffered a serious ankle injury, breaking both of his talus bones. In February 2005, on his 38th birthday, Accola announced that he would retire as alpine skier after nearly two decades in the sport.

He is the sixth Swiss sportsperson to compete at five Olympics, after middle-distance runner Paul Martin, equestrians Henri Chammartin and Gustav Fischer, javelin thrower Urs von Wartburg, and equestrian Christine Stückelberger.

He is the brother of fellow former alpine skier Martina Accola.[2]
