March 15, 2018

Launch of the 5th edition of the Longines Future Ski Champions and inauguration of the countdown to the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships Åre 2019

Tonight took place the bib draw ceremony of the fifth edition of the Longines Future Ski Champions race, held tomorrow in Åre, Sweden, in the context of the FIS Alpine World Cup Finals. Representing twelve different countries, the young athletes, all aged under 16, will compete tomorrow in a two-run giant slalom on the official World Cup slope. The winner will receive a trophy, as well as a Longines timepiece. During the ceremony, the young athletes had the opportunity to meet the patron of the event, Longines Ambassador of Elegance Mikaela Shiffrin, who gave them some advice on their physical and mental preparation for the race.

This celebration, held in the center of the village, was followed by the unveiling of the countdown to the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships 2019, supported by Longines as Official Partner and Timekeeper. The launch was attended by representatives of the FIS and the Organizing Committee of Åre 2019.
