Tina Weirather: a talent from Liechtenstein – equipped by Oerlikon
When Tina Weirather, a young and talented ski athlete steps on the worldcup-podium, she is wearing a racing suit made of high-quality yarn produced on Oerlikon machines. She already stood on the podium four times this season which just began.
The 22-year-old athlete from Liechtenstein is currently in top form, despite the four cruciate ligament ruptures she has had in her career. “I was not sure if I had the energy to continue after these injuries. I had to start from scratch every time, and then again all the efforts were destroyed in a second,” said Weirather. Nevertheless, during the last season she has achieved a comeback. Even top athletes like Maria Höfl-Riesch compliment Tina Weirather. Höfl-Riesch describes her as the woman with the greatest future potential in downhill racing.
The racing suit is not the only contribution of Oerlikon to Tina Weirather’s success. Oerlikon is also a sponsor of the Ski Association of Liechtenstein, where among others Tina Weirather is part of the national team.
