World Champion!

The 12th of February 2017 already does down in Stöckli's annuals as a very special day. Today, Ilka Stuhec confirmed her role as favorite and became this year's World Champion in Downhill in St. Moritz.

World Champion!

Who would have dreamed of this a couple of months ago when Stöckli and Ilka decided to cooperate together? Before this season, the Slovenian never even stood on a World Cup podium. Ever since this decision she was able to celebrate 5 victories, is current point leader in the World Cup downhill and now crowns this success with the Gold Medal in the World Championships. Simply unbelievable! 

The pressure on our Slovenian athlete was very strong, considering the fact that she dominated both trainings and in light of her surprising elimination from the super combination.   But with her starting number 7 she proved that she could cope very well with these circumstances and delivered an almost perfect run!

Two years after the triumph of another Stöckli athlete (Tina Maze) Stöckli thus has one more World Champion!  Thank you, Ilka!
