JESSICA’S FREEDOM TO CHOOSE FOR MAXIMUM PROFESSIONALITY

Don’t we know a similar story? Tina Weirather, who was up until recently an extremely successful Atomic athlete, is the daughter of the Austrian downhill double World Champion Harti Weirather and the Liechtenstein skiing icon Hanni Wenzel. She decided to race for Switzerland. And Jessica Hilzinger also had, as a daughter of a German and Liechtensteiner with Austrian roots, the possibility to choose. She’s starting for the German Ski Association (DSV) now. And for Atomic, which could be important for the future, as. It’s said she has the greatest skiing talent. Her dream of participating in her first Olympics in Pyeongchang fell through though as just before the games she broke her tibia plateau in a crash during slalom training, which won’t deter her from her bigger dream To establish herself well in the technical disciplines in the World Cup, then follow on with the super G and then if the opportunity arises take the downhill. All disciplines: Jessica has the discipline to be able to handle a marathon programme later.
