Gear Guide: LEKI Renews Contract With Lindsey Vonn Through 2020
LEKI today announced they have renewed their sponsorship agreement with three-time Olympic Medalist and four-time World Cup Champion Lindsey Vonn for two more seasons. Vonn won her three Olympic medals in 2010 and 2018 using LEKI gear and the renewal guarantees she will continue to train and compete exclusively with LEKI poles and gate guards.
In January 2015, Vonn became the best female skier of all time when she surpassed Annemarie Moser-Proell’s record of 62 World Cup wins. To date, Vonn has 82 World Cup wins and continues her quest to surpass Ingemar Stenmark’s record of 86 World Cup victories to become the best ski racer ever, male or female.
In partnership with Ski Racing Media, LEKI is sponsoring the Lindsey Vonn Victory Tracker at www.skiracing.com where fans can follow her race to break the record. Vonn will be the only downhill skier to race with LEKI’s limited edition pink poles this season, which will no doubt become an iconic piece of her legacy on the slopes.
“Lindsey is one of the most dominant and exciting ski racers in the world and we’re thrilled to be a part of her journey as she chases this record,” said Greg Wozer, Vice President of LEKI. “All of us at LEKI are proud to be a part of her amazing career and wish her the best of luck this season.”
