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.“

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.”
