LANDERTINGER RETURNS TO FISCHER RACING TEAM
The time has come to say "welcome home". After three years away, Dominik Landertinger is now back in the Fischer Racing Team. Austria's most successful biathlete will once again be hunting for points and medals with Fischer in future.
Dominik Landertinger had already been successful on Fischer prior to and including the 2010/11 season. The front man in biathlon in Austria celebrated his first WCH title in Pyeongchang in 2009. Landertinger also clinched victory in the mass start World Cup that same year. He then went on to win silver in the relay event at his first Olympic Games in Vancouver in 2010.
After three non-Fischer years, Dominik Landertinger is now a member of the Fischer Racing Team again. "Fischer has the very best know-how in the Nordic sector," says the 26-year-old, explaining the reasons behind his decision. "In terms of performance and feeling, Fischer skis are simply the ones best suited to me and my technique." The popular and outstanding athlete is looking forward to the upcoming challenges: "I have complete faith in the entire service team at Fischer, which is why I am fully motivated and aiming to celebrate successful races with them."
"Above all, as an Austrian brand we are delighted to have such a dominant Austrian athlete back in our team again. This is an important signal, especially for the domestic market," says Thomas Drindl, Nordic Division Manager at Fischer Sports, on behalf of the whole Fischer Racing Team, delighted about the trust shown by the homecomer.
