An Interview: with a Champion Skier

John Bower enjoyed a good measure of success during his seven years of international ski competition. He was a member of the 1964 and 1968 United States Olympic teams. But in 1968, Mr. Bower learned something in Christian Science that helped him become the first American and non-European ever to win the King's Cup in the Holmenkollen Combined ski event held each year in Oslo, Norway. Now he coaches the United States Nordic Combined Team, and is ski coach at Middlebury College, Vermont. In summer, Mr. Bower directs a camp for young Christian Scientists in Maine.

The Holmenkollen win didn't come until the final competition of your career. Can you explain?
