The GEPA photographer Christian Walgram was the first Austrian to win the World Press Photo Award in the category “Sports – Singles”. His photo shows the Czech athlete Ondrej Bank, who suffered a terrible crash on the final jump during the downhill portion of the Alpine combined at the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in Vail/Beaver Creek in 2015. Walgram pressed the shutter button at this exact time and forever captured the moment that made everybody watching hold their breath.
