Julie Zogg: successful in both worldsOerlikon supports and sponsors Julie Zogg – several time junior World Champion in snowboarding and apprentice at Oerlikon Mechatronics.
Young talent deserves our support: For Oerlikon, this sentiment applies both within the company and outside of it. For Julie Zogg, this means reaping twice the benefits. The winner of multiple titles in the Snowboard Junior World Championships has been sponsored by Oerlikon for many years as a young athlete while she completes an apprenticeship at Oerlikon Mechatronics. For some, this would be twice the burden. But Julie takes it all in stride, enthusiastically filling both roles – even if it does make for a tight schedule. Particularly during the summer months, the apprentice has to make up for time lost due to her rigorous training and competition schedule. This iron will and stamina have already paid off for the young Swiss athlete – several times over. At the International Ski Federation Snowboard World Cup in Bad Gastein, she earned her first spot on the winner’s podium in an international parallel slalom. Shortly afterward, she brought home her first gold medal. In the meantime, Julie has collected more medals than almost anyone in the history of the Snowboarding Junior World Championships.
