Carlo Janka and Atomic have agreed to extend their partnership until 2016. The cooperation with the 26-year-old Swiss was extended to also include - besides Atomic skis, boots and bindings - also helmets and goggles.

"It's great to be able to continue to work with people who have trusted me for many years - the decision was indeed very easy for me. I want to continue the success story with Atomic", said the giant slalom Olympic champion and overall World Cup winner 2010.

Janka's upcoming main goals include the 2013 World Ski Championships in Schladming, the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi 2014, and the 2015 World Ski Championships in Vail, for a total of four more seasons. Carlo Janka, who has won everything there is to win in Alpine Skiing, is about to start a new era with Atomic.

"All of Atomic products are top, so I've now decided to take the helmet and goggles as well. The people I work with in this company for many years, are professional and work with great enthusiasm. I'm looking forward to another four years with Atomic - perhaps the best years to come," says Janka, who has completed since his World Cup debut in 2005 a total of 129 starts on Atomic.

Currently the Swiss rests at home trying to heal his back problems, which bothered him during entire season: "The break helps me and my back. Also, I'm doing therapy daily and I do hope to be able to start to train soon for the upcoming season. I am confident to be back in full shape."
