AS THE DAUGHTER OF SUCCESSFUL SKIING PARENTS, MRS UNIQUENESS DOES THE RIGHT THING: HER OWN THING.
Her mother was a double Winter Olympics champion and four times world champion. Her father became a national hero after winning gold at Schladming in 1982. As an aspiring ski racer, what path should their daughter follow? That's right: she chose to do her own thing. This sums up Tina Weirather's approach - skiing for Liechtenstein, training with Switzerland, holder of an Austrian passport and with all the skiing talent of her parents. And unfortunately hampered by repeated injuries. Most recently in Sochi, after ten podium finishes in four disciplines. But: the end of the Winter Olympics heralds the start of preparations for the World Championships in the USA - the next chance to win her own medals.
