Both the physiological and biomechanical characteristics of elite skiing sports are complex and challenging, as recently highlighted by Müller and Liu . Taken together, the results of our analysis of top-class athletes of the four main alpine skiing world cup disciplines seemingly suggest that other physiological characteristics and technical skills may be more important than the physical profile for succeeding in one specific discipline. Therefore, young athletes shall rely more on their physical performance and athletic ability than on their anthropometric characteristics for deciding in which alpine skiing discipline the success is more likely achievable.
