Tina Weirather is taking over the family business, an excelling early. The 24-year-old alpine ski racer was born into the sport, with both her parents being World Cup ski racers. The Liechtenstein native began racing on the World Cup circuit in 2005 at the age of 16.
Don’t let Weirather’s youth fool you. Already this young alpine racer has qualified for two Olympic Games, coming in 33rd in the Super-G competition during the 2006 Turin, Italy Winter Olympics and sitting out the 2010 Games after qualifying, due to injury. Since then, Weirather has collected two World Cup Super-G wins and looks to rally that success into a podium at the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi.
