Special Olympics World Winter Games 2017

Feedback from the WWF winners Erika Kälin and Reinhart Schütz:
“Heartbeat for the World” was the motto of the 11th World Winter Games in Graz/Schladming (A). With 2,700 athletes from 107 nations, it was the largest global winter sport event in 2017. The cross-country skiers Erika Kälin and her accompanying runner Reinhart Schütz from the SC am Bachtel were members of the 70-strong Swiss delegation. As they applied TOKO waxes to their skis, they created a sound basis for their success.


Vars speed skiing!!!

We were on the spot in Vars to witness the attempt to break the Speed Ski World Record and support multiple championship winner Simone Origone from Italy.
Unfortunately the warm weather made the snow too soft and too wet for him to beat the record.
The best speed was reached by Bastien Montes from France with 251,397, the second top speed was achieved by Simone Origone from Italy with 249,781.
Although we didn't succeed in breaking the record this year, it was a wonderful experience and we'll try again next year !!!


World Cup in Oslo, Holmenkollen

Directly after the World Championships we were treated to yet another highlight of the cross-country season. The legendary long-distance races in Holmenkollen, Oslo are renowned as some of the most prestigious of the season.
Thousands of spectators already set up their night camp in the forests around the tracks and created a fantastic atmosphere on both days of the event.


WC Korea Olympia General Trials

Next year Korea will be hosting the 2018 Olympic Winter Games. This World Cup is therefore the general trial for the approaching major event. Several athletes are still familiar with the location from the World Championships in 2009. A few minor changes have been made to the route but apart from these everything is the same. Let’s just say that Korea isn’t exactly a winter sport stronghold!


World Championships in Lahti

On Sunday the Nordic World Championships in Lahti once more drew to a close.
The large crowds were also able to witness exciting and varied race to win the gold, silver and bronze medals in the second week.
The relays featured  pure drama,  crashes alls and hotly-contested duals on the straights. Ultimately the Norwegian team repeated the Ladies' success as the deserving winners of the gold medal.
With her fourth victory Marit Björgen was the most successful athlete of these World Championships and Alex Harvey was celebrated as the king of the long-distance discipline.

Crans Montana Combined 2: Shiffrin in front

Sunday was another good day in Crans Montana that hosted another Ski World Cup race, the Combined 2.
Finishing in seventh place in the Super-G, not far from the leader, American Michaela Shiffrin had good prospects for winning the overall victory and so she did – making no mistake in the slalom, she won the combined race!!!
Italian Federica Brignone repeated her excellent performance of Friday and reached second place, followed by the ubiquitous Slovenian Ilka Štuhec in third.
