Tessa Worley announces in her latest blog on her website (here) just before departure for her 2nd trip to Ushuaia (ARG) for on-snow training, that she is the new French Milka Girl. Following the retirement of Ingrid Jacquemod, Worley joins the team of international Milka Girls who also include overall World Cup winner Maria Riesch (GER), reigning giant slalom world champion Tina Maze (SLO), slalom specialist Sarka Zahrobska (CZE), and Michaela Kirchgasser (AUT).

Another new member of the Milka Ski Girls team comes from Italy, extending the team to a new country: Elena Curtoni gets this special honor after she scored a stunning 6th place finish in the ladies' super-G at the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in Garmisch-Partenkirchen (GER) as well as won gold in the ladies' super-G at the 2011 Junior Worlds in Crans-Montana (SUI).
