A big success, despite a broken pole during qualification. But this doesn’t keep Atomic Youngster, Sondre Turvoll Fossli, from getting onto the podium in Davos. His 3rd place finish puts him into 2nd place in the World Cup. Another eye-opening performance was delivered by Atomic lady Anna Falk, who finished 5th in the women’s sprint

A sign of a healthy self-confidence could be a podium finish despite a broken pole. Atomic star, Sonde Turvoll Fossli, proved just that in Davos. After his mishap during qualification – which not only cost him time, but also valuable power – he delivered a happy ending during the World Cup stop in Davos. After finishing in 3rd place, Fossli is only 22 points behind 2nd place in the sprint World Cup.

THE NEXT BIG FOSSLI STORY:

This winter, the three-time Junior World Champion has delivered suspense on a regular basis. At the start of the season, after Olympic champion Ola Vigen Hattestad had to be with his wife, who was in labour, Fossli recorded his first ever World Cup win as a (originally planned) substitute. However, the podium finish in Davos is as important as his initial World Cup win. “I lost a lot of power during qualification, but I’ve also found out how well I can access my reserves when needed.”

His 2nd place in the current World Cup standings can also be attributed to Fossli’s “best-ever setup”. In particular, the Atomic Redster skis show big improvements with the weight-reduction, acceleration power and Atomic’s fastest racing base of all time.

HANNA FALK AGAIN AMONG THE WORLD’S ELITE WITH A 5th PLACE IN DAVOS

Also raising eyebrows during the international cross-country days in Davos was Atomic athlete Hanna Falk. With a 5th place finish Falk showed that she’s a force to be reckoned with: “This season I want to show that I can compete with the world’s best and today was a vital step into this direction.”
