Swiss siblings Mélanie and Loïc Meillard win the 2018 Longines Rising Ski Stars Prize

Alpine Skiing
March 18, 2018

Bringing together the season’s top-25 male and female skiers in each discipline, the FIS Alpine World Cup Finals are taking place this year in the Scandinavian ski resort of Åre, Sweden, which will also host the next FIS Alpine Ski World Championships – both event supported by Longines as the Official Partner and Timekeeper. On the occasion of the Finals, the Swiss watch brand celebrated the conclusion of the season by awarding the Longines Rising Ski Stars Prize. This year, it was a family-shared recognition, as Swiss siblings Mélanie and Loïc Meillard have distinguished themselves as the best female skier (under 21) and the best male skier (under 23) of the 2017/2018 World Cup season.

For Mélanie Meillard, 2018 started off well as she claimed her first podium in the FIS Alpine World Cup, finishing third in the City Event in Oslo, Norway. With a total of 431 points at the end of the season, ahead of Katharina Gallhuber (AUT) with 303 points and Katharina Liensberger with 206 points, Mélanie finished ten times in the top-10 in World Cup races. With a score of 299 points at the end of the season, triple Junior World Champion Loïc Meillard had a very good season as well, being amongst the 10 best skiers at five of his World Cup races. Following the Ladies’ slalom race, Loïc Meillard was presented with a Longines timepiece, as well as a trophy and a cheque, from the hands of Longines Vice President and Head of International Marketing Juan-Carlos Capelli and Casper Gebeke, of Longines Sweden. His sister Melanie, who did not participate in the finals due to an injury, was represented by Jérôme Krieg from Swiss-Ski, who received the coveted recognition on her behalf.
