Christina "Tina" Weirather (born 24 May 1989) is a World Cup alpine ski racer from Liechtenstein.
Weirather made her World Cup debut at age 16 in October 2005 and has six victories and 26 podiums through March 2016.
Weirather competed in two events at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy, and finished 33rd in the super-G, but did not finish in the downhill. She had qualified to ski in four events at the 2010 Winter Olympics: downhill, super-G, giant slalom, and the combined. Just weeks before the Olympics on 23 January, while competing in a World Cup downhill at Cortina d'Ampezzo, Weirather suffered another anterior cruciate ligament injury to her right knee and missed the Olympics, as well as the following World Cup season of 2011.
Following years of training alongside her compatriots on the Liechtenstein Alpine Ski team, Weirather now trains with the Swiss team.
During the fourth training run for the downhill at the 2014 Winter Olympics, Weirather crashed at Rosa Khutor on 9 February and injured her lower right leg. The bone contusion caused her to miss her starts in the Olympics and the remainder of the 2014 World Cup season. At the time, she was second in the World Cup overall, downhill and super-G standings and third in the giant slalom.
On the regular World Cup Tour, Tina Weirather claimed 6 wins and 26 podiums. She didn't grab a globe yet, but got pretty close a few times: 2nd of DH ranking in 2012, 4th of DH and 3rd of SG ranking in 2014, 2nd of SG ranking in 2016. She proved to be one of the best skiers of her generation, by finishing the Overall World Cup in 5th position in 2014 and in 4th position in 2016.
