Jimmie Heuga and multiple sclerosis
U.S. skier Jimmie Heuga was not the only participant in the 1964 Olympic Games to have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
Heuga, who won a bronze medal in the slalom, died Monday, He was 66.
"We don't know that much about M.S., in general, so maybe in a couple [or] three decades we'll know why it has happened," Stiegler said in 1995 on a "CBS This Morning" appearance with Heuga and Zimmermann. "Not that it matters to us anymore, but maybe for future generations that have M.S., it might be of significance to them."
