Andrea Fischbacher, FIS Alpine Ski World Cup downhill winner in Crans-Montana Switzerland, is honored with a CHARRIOL Celtica Chrono.
The FIS Alpine Ski World Cup is the top international circuit of Alpine Skiing competitions staged annually. It is considered the premier competition in alpine ski racing together with the quadrennial Olympic Winter Games and the biennial FIS Alpine World Ski Championships. Some experts event consider winning the World Cup to be athletically a more valuable title than winning gold at the Olympic Winter Games or the World Championships, since it requires a competitor to ski at an extremely high level in several events throughout the season, and not just in one race. Today, the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup races are held primarily at famous ski resorts in the European Alps, along with regular stops in Scandinavia, North America, and Far East Asia. Competitors attempt to score a maximum of points during the season in five events: slalom, giant slalom, super-G, downhill and super combined.
CHARRIOL is proud to be present with the FIS in Crans-Montana 2014 and to honor the courage, the precision and the competition spirit of these female racers.
On March 2nd, Austrian Andrea Fischbacher gets the victory ahead her compatriot Anna Fenninger and Slovenian Tina Maze.
