Benjamin Raich and Marlies Schild: stay on the path of success with Atomic
Mr. & Mrs. Atomic stay! Benjamin Raich and Marlies Schild prolonged their cooperation with Atomic until 2014. Two exceptional athletes, and two extraordinary years with remarkable highlights – the world championships in Schladming 2013 and the Olympic Games 2014 in Sochi. The two Atomic all stars have big plans.
He: 36 World Cup victories; she: 35. He: double Olympic winner, triple World Champion, winner of the overall World Cup; she: triple medal winner at Olympic Games, current slalom World Champion, four-time winner of the overall slalom World Cup. And all of this happened with ATOMIC as partner. “It is a very successful cooperation with a lot of potential, this is why we’ve decided to prolong it“, Benjamin Raich explained. His partner Marlies Schild added, “ATOMIC works just as hard on the success as I do. All of us are full of enthusiasm for this wonderful sport.“
THE BEST MATERIAL FOR THE BEST BRAND AMBASSADORS
Racing Director Rudi Huber is happy about the further cooperation, “Marlies Schild is a serial winner, she is a leader in women’s skiing, she is an icon for ATOMIC and contributes her unique know-how to the development of material. Just like Benjamin Raich, who is Mr. ATOMIC for me. And he’s still full of plans and ambitions.” After his first super-G victory last season and his best result in downhill (5th place) on the World Championships slope in Schladming, Raich is working consistently on his goal of winning a downhill.
Bernadette Schild (22) also prolonged her cooperation with ATOMIC until 2014. Huber, “Bernie is the number 2 in slalom and giant slalom in her age group. She’s on her way to live up to her tremendous potential.”
