Nicole “Niki” Hosp and Markus Wasmeier have won 17 medals between them, at Olympic Games and World Championships. These two athletes have written ski history – two names, representing a special will to succeed, with a special connection to the uvex brand.
Markus Wasmeier loved to be on the start line at the biggest sporting events, always on the hunt for precious metals. He was only 21 years old when, in 1985, he became Giant Slalom World Champion, on Bormio’s legendary Stelvio course. 9 years later at the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway, he won Gold in Giant Slalom and Super G.
For over a decade, Niki Hosp was one of the most influential figures in alpine ski racing. In 2003 she won her first World Championship medal in St. Moritz, Switzerland. In 2007, she secured the overall World Cup and became World Champion in Åre, Sweden. She twice repeated this feat, with the German National Team, at the World Championships in Schladming, Austria (2013) and Vail/Beaver Creek, USA (2015).
