This is the ultimate highlight of a long and successful career! Blizzard & Tecnica athlete Mario Matt (AUT) wins the gold medal at the Olympic slalom race in Sochi.
The challenging course at Rosa Khutor was selective, but Mario proved his good condition, which kept him into the top ranking over the whole season.
"That´s absolutely amazing. I was so focused and trained hard over the whole season and it´s incredible to see, that my plans worked out like that. I knew that I´m fast enough, but you never know what can happen during such a big race. But I felt well and my equipment worked perfectly, so I grabbed the chance and now I´m standing here with this medal! It was the right decision to start later then usual with my training after the last World Cup Slalom races. Thanks to everybody for making this possible!“
Congratulations, Mario we´re proud of you!
