Official winner's diploma from the Lake Placid 1980 Winter Games, one page, 11.75 x 13.75, with blue lower border and upper border consisting of gold, silver, and bronze layers. The central section shows the Lake Placid Games logo with embossed images of pine branches. Signed twice in blue ink by Lord Killanin as president of the International Olympic Committee, and by Rev. J. Bernard Fell and Art Devlin as president and vice-president of the Lake Placid Olympic Organizing Committee. Killanin inadvertently signed on the line designated for the recipient's name—in this case, it should have been Christa Kinshofer, who took fifth place in Women's Giant Slalom Skiing; a corrected version would have been presented to the athlete. In fine condition.
