Niki Hosp switches to Fischer
It’s been fixed since 14 April: Nicole Hosp (AUT) changed to Fischer. The World Champion of Are (SWE) and overall World Cup winner 2007 will be using skis, boots and bindings for the coming two years until 2013. After several days of material testing she decided to switch the brand. „The material works brillant. It was fun using it at skiing. Leaving my old brand after twelve years wasn’t easy for me but finally I had to find a decision. This is a new challenge, motivating me“, said Niki Hosp after her decision. With this step she’d like to tie in with her great results backwards.
The overall World Cup is the goal
For Fischer the engagement of Hosp is a specific step into the direction o the overall World Cup. „Having Niki in our team makes us competitive in the overall World Cup. She is good for top results in each discipline. That’s why she was on our priorities list. To win the big crystal globe with her is our main goal“, is Siegi Voglreiter, Racing Director of Fischer Sports, pleased. Besides Austria’s World Cup newcomer Jessica Depauli gets a brand colleague in her team with Hosp. Therewith Fischer on one hand keeps the youngest talented racer with the highest potential and on the other hand one of the world’s best athlete with a great future.
