Goldwin Outfits Sweden National Alpine Ski Team for Sochi Olympics and Beyond
Los Angeles, CA (January 17, 2014) — As an official supplier to the Sweden National Alpine Ski Team, Goldwin is no stranger to Olympic glory. If there was a gold standard for the ultimate in performance skiwear, the name Goldwin would surely grace the top of the list.
Goldwin (www.goldwin-sports.com) will debut its Men’s and Women’s 2014-15 Winter Collection at the upcoming Ski Industries Association (SIA) Snow Show, Jan. 30-Feb. 2, in Denver (Booth #1748) at the Colorado Convention Center.
The partnership between Goldwin and the Swedish team has lasted for 25 years and been worn by many of the world’s skiing champions, including the great Ingemar Stenmark. It continues as Goldwin outfits the Swedish team participating at World Cup events and the Winter Games in Sochi, Russia in February.
From world-class competitions to world-class resorts, Goldwin takes center stage among the most prestigious skiwear brands, and stands alone with its commitment to technical excellence and style.
“I need functional gear when I’m on the slopes,” says Olympic Medalist André Myhrer of Sweden. “Goldwin delivers high-class products that make me feel comfortable every day. My goal this winter is to win gold.”
Sweden’s Sport Director for the Alpine Ski Team, Anders Sundqvist, recognizes the importance of superior product: “Since our athletes and coaches live in Goldwin clothing over 200 days a year, it’s very important that the products work. They feel great and that allows the skiers to relax and focus on their races.”
