Biography

Henrik Kristoffersen (born 2 July 1994) is a Norwegian World Cup alpine ski racer and Olympic medalist.
Born in Lørenskog in Akershus county, Kristoffersen specializes in the technical events of slalom and giant slalom. He made his World Cup debut March 2012 in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia, and attained his first podium in November 2013, a third-place finish in slalom at Levi, Finland. At the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Kristoffersen won the bronze medal in slalom at Rosa Khutor at age 19 to become the youngest male medalist in Olympic alpine skiing history.
Kristoffersen is the first to win the three classic slalom races in Adelboden, Wengen, and Kitzbühel in the same season; accomplished at age 21 in January 2016. During this run, he became the most winning Norwegian in the history of World Cup slalom competition. With his seventh win at Wengen, Kristofferson tied Finn Christian Jagge (b.1966), and the eighth came a week later in Kitzbühel to set the record. His ninth slalom victory was two days later (26 January), at the night race of Schladming.

Achievements

Kristofferson is the first skier to win the four classic slalom races (of Adelboden, Wengen, Kitzbühel, and Schladming) in a single season.

Kristoffersen is the first racer since Alberto Tomba in the 1992 season to win six slalom races during a single season.

Personal life

Henriksen is a supporter of Vålerenga Ishockey.
