These young athletes are well on their way to becoming the best in the world and will complement the powerful veterans on the Fischer team over the coming seasons. The fixed starters and up-and-comers include both the stars of tomorrow and some well-known names.
Three Fischer athletes who have secured places on the World Cup grid for this season come from Switzerland. The 22-year-old Swiss Fadri Janutin, who has plenty of ambition but is also proud of his "rough edges," secured his World Cup ticket with a second-place finish in the European Cup. He narrowly missed out on another fixed starting place with his fourth-place finish in the slalom.
Additionally, Noel von Grünigen, a teammate and a friend of Janutin, is slated to join the Fischer World Cup squad after earning second place in the European Slalom Cup. It's no wonder that the eldest son of former Fischer World Champion Michael von Grünigen has opted for a professional career on Fischer. After all, the young von Grünigen was already skiing on Fischer skis at the age of two.
