ARE 2007: SAFETY WINS HANDS DOWN
23 February 2007 | News
Dainese is currently standing at the top of the world in Are, Sweden, where the Alpine World Ski Championship was held from February 3 - 18.
The Dainese Team athletes all outdid themselves and brought home as many as five shining medals, three of which in the most precious metal of all. The biggest medal-winner of all was unsurprisingly Aksel Lund Svindal, who wears a Dainese helmet, goggles, and protections. The all-around Norwegian skier who presently stands alone at the top of the World Ski Cup standings left even his closet competitors far behind in the Downhill race and then repeated the feat in the Giant Slalom race a few days later.
Italian Patrick Staudacher, provided with the same Dainese protection adopted by the entire Italian FISI National Alpine Ski Team, stepped up to the highest point on the winners’ stand in the Super Giant Slalom race, and by way of bringing this truly “Inspired by Humans” Alpine World Ski Championship to completion, Italian skiers Manfred Moelgg and Denise Karbon produced silver and bronze medals respectively in their Men’s Special Slalom and Women’s Giant Slalom races.
With results like these, it’s no exaggeration to say that safety won hands down at the Are 2007 Alpine World Ski Championship.
