Annerösli Zryd (born May 3, 1949 in Adelboden ) is a former Swiss ski racer .

Zryd surprisingly became the downhill world champion at the 1970 Alpine World Ski Championships in Val Gardena . This World Championship was also counted as part of the World Cup , so this victory is also listed as a World Cup victory.

Before that, her best results in the Ski World Cup were two fourth places on the downhill runs from Sestriere and Franconia in March 1967. At the 1968 Winter Olympics in Grenoble , she was unbalanced on February 10, just before the finish, and hit when she passed the finish against a wooden pole - and finished eleventh. In the same year she became Swiss champion in the downhill. After the 1969/70 season, Zryd retired from active competitive sports.


In the summer of 1969 she was hit by unlucky injuries. Only recently recovered from a ligament strain and a torn meniscus (after an unsuccessful trampoline jump in Magglingen ), she suddenly fell on her back on July 2nd while doing gymnastics at the Frutigen gymnastics club. The result was bruised muscles and ligaments in the back, lower back and buttocks.
