Emil Jönsson & Anna Haag (SWE)
ANNA HAAG UND EMIL JÖNSSON TAKE ON NEW SEASON WITH FISCHER EQUIPMENT
It's all happening in the cross country camp: besides Dario Cologna (SUI), Anna Haag and Emil Jönsson (both SWE) have decided in favour of Fischer skis and boots starting immediately.
Seeing as last season didn't work out quite as expected for the two Oslo 2011 medallists due to illness, both have now decided to try to pick up where they left off with past successes, this time with new equipment. This means that Anna Haag and Emil Jönsson have now joined forces not only on a private but also on a professional basis.
Sprint specialist Emil Jönsson has already been very successful with Fischer skis, winning (among others) the small globe for victory in the Sprint World Cup in the 09l10 and 10l11 seasons. "The performance of the boots is outstanding and they are in perfect harmony with the Fischer skis," says the fast Swede, explaining his new choice of boots, which also includes a switch to the successful NNN binding system.
For Anna Haag, on the other hand, the switch means a whole new package. The world class athlete is already highly enthusiastic about the new equipment: "I felt comfortable with the boots as soon as I put them on and it's plain to see that the skis work because of all the successes of the other Fischer athletes."
"As we have already been the most successful ski and boot brand in the Nordic World Cup for two years, word has got around among the athletes that the Fischer package is so convincing. The new signings, particularly in the boot sector, show that we have taken a giant leap forward in boot development," says a clearly happy Gerhard Urain, Nordic Racing Director at Fischer.
