Lange has announced that Federica Brignone is the 2012 Lange Girl.

The 21-year-old Federica Brignone already boasts a great list of achievements. In 2009, she became junior world champion in combined and the following year she won silver in giant slalom. Meanwhile, she has scored 5 podiums in the World Cup, beginning in Aspen in 2009 (3rd). 2011 was a very good year for her as she won the silver medal in giant slalom in the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. This season, the Italian skier was on the podium in Lienz, Kranjska Gora and Are!

Federica is a Super Athlete but also a Super Girl. She represents perfectly femininity, elegance and Lange's premium identity.

She said: “When the first poster of the Lange Girl went out, I was not yet in the World Cup and I said to myself that if I was one day, that would be really good! It is an honor for me to appear on this poster, especially after all the athletes who represented the brand before me! I think that this concept allows presenting the athlete differently, without a helmet or a bodysuit! I like this new image of "Super Girl", it represents us well. In our sport, we need a lot of bravery and of course, the best equipment. Without Lange, you can achieve nothing. I could not ski without my blue shoes, they are the most beautiful!”
