There are three things that Norwegian Alpine skier Kjetil Andre Aamodt will not be doing after winning a record fourth Olympic gold medal on Saturday.
He will not be hitting the town to celebrate his extraordinary achievement.
He will not, even at the age of 34, contemplate retirement.And, above all, he will not let his father take the super-G medal home.
The last time Aamodt senior borrowed his son's collection, all 19 medals from world championships and Olympic Games, they were stolen.They have never been recovered, although replacements have been made.
Aamodt won his first Olympic super-G gold medal in Albertville in 1992 and 14 years later remains a world beater, becoming only the second male skier to defend a title, after Italian Alberto Tomba in 1992.
He is now the first to win the same event three times.
In between, in a career stretching back to 1989, he has won 21 World Cup races.His Olympic haul now extends to four golds, two silvers and two bronzes.
Like Maier, who came back from a horrendous motorcycle accident to become a champion, Aamodt has fought back from illness and injury to stand on top of the world.
In 1991, as a 20-year-old, he was in hospital with mononucleosis, a virus, and had to be drip-fed.He won his first gold medal six weeks later.
Saturday's gold was another comeback tale, the Norwegian injured in last weekend's downhill and having to miss Tuesday's defence of his combined title.
"I thought the Olympics was over when I landed on that jump, it was a lot of pain in my knee," he said."I was smart not to do the combined and tried to be ready for today.I can't believe it's true."
Lie Down
Aamodt said he would celebrate in his own style -- horizontally."When you achieve something great it is better just to lie on the bed and feel the good feeling inside yourself," he said.
Of course today would have been a great day to retire but I said that at Salt Lake too when I won the super-G," said Aamodt.
Norwegian team manager Per Lund doubted his country would ever again see a skier like Aamodt and said he would be happy to see him racing for a few more years.
"I hope he does not stop," he told Reuters.
