Grand Slam: Ski Star Lindsey Vonn Claims Giant Slalom in Austria, Completes Sweep of Five Disciplines
Lindsey Vonn has Gold Medals. She has the fame. But she was missing one thing: A Giant Slalom victory. Until this past weekend, that is. Oakley’s Olympic Gold Medalist opened up the World Cup season with a resounding GS victory in Soelden, Austria – etching her name in the record books as only the fifth female skier to win a race in all five Alpine disciplines.
Janko is officially on fire. Oakley’s blooming Tennis Star claimed his second ATP World Tour victory this past weekend, topping his good friend and Serbian Countryman Viktor Troicki at the Kremlin Cup in Moscow, Russia – 6-4, 6-2. After the tour’s first-ever all-Serbian final, Janko, who shot up to an ATP year-to-date No. 10 ranking following the victory, displayed understandably mixed emotions. “It was really tough,” Janko said, sporting his Oakley Prescription/Transition Fast Jacket performance eyewear. “We were both tight. You could cut the tension with a knife. It was like a nightmare to play against your friend.”
The heart and soul of the Oakley brand: Its athletes. The performance and safety of the Oakley family are the reason for the company’s unmatched, patented technologies in eyewear and gear. Exhibit O: NHL Star Francois Beauchemin of the Anaheim Ducks. During a recent match against the San Jose Sharks, Defenseman Dan Boyle’s third-period shot beamed straight at Fracois’ face, hitting him right above the eye at close to 90 mph. But there was one thing standing between his face and the ultra-dangerous puck. His Oakley Hockey visor.
