The son of Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace, Albert II is an avid athlete. He competed for the Winter Olympics in 1988, 1992, 1994, 1998, and 2002. He bobsledded in both two-man and four-man events, although he has not won many medals.

Beyond his numerous competitions, he has remained a member of the International Olympic Committee since 1985, before he even started competing. He seems to have inherited his passion for sports from his grandfather John B. Kelly Sr and uncle John B. Kelly Jr, who both won Olympic medals in rowing.
