HOW MAURO IS CARVING HIS WAY OUT OF HIS SPATE OF INJURIES

87 kilos of pure athlete, 1 m 81 cm tall, however his career seems like a crash course in anatomy: Torn cruciate ligament, damaged meniscus, dislocated shoulder, fractured fibula, bone marrow edema, broken finger Those are only a few of them. This is why the man from Graubünden had to write off three out of the seven World Cup winter seasons, but still takes it with great composure. ”Those were difficult setbacks. But I was still lucky that I could come back healthy every time.” His idol in his youth and neighbour from Lenzerheide wasn’t so lucky: Silvano Beltrametti. For Mauro he's always available as a consultant. Perhaps this is the reason, alongside the race support from Altenmarkt, why the 30 year old knows how to show his potential which resides within him: Combined Bronze in the World Championships at his home in 2017, seven Top 10 places in the Olympic winter. And five times he was only three tenths of a second away from his second World Cup podium after Aspen in 2017.
