Corinne Suter, a Swiss World Cup alpine ski racer, the 2021 World Downhill Champion and the world’s best speed specialist, has joined the Hublot family.
And one day, all your efforts turn into success! The first podiums bring confidence and that confidence brings podiums. I really felt that I was surrendering, that I was also having much more fun on my skis, I put much less pressure on myself and my first medals allowed me to convert those hundredths of seconds which were against me into success. Knowing that I can keep up and compete with the best, I feel liberated. Even though I am aware that the slate is wiped clean with each race, and that I always have to push my limits, I am now competing for and no longer against myself. I don’t want to be faster than anyone else, I just want to improve for myself; I ski for myself and not against someone else. That mindset has changed everything. I transcend the race adrenalin and it transcends me. When I met Hublot, Ricardo and the teams, I again found that desire to surpass oneself, to make each watch, each new material, an opportunity to push new limits, because this is a brand that is competing for itself, not against itself or others. A family of athletes and media personalities united by the same desire to surpass themselves, again and again. – Corinne Suter
Corinne Suter’s very promising early career was followed by a succession of injuries, and then she underwent a renaissance that resulted in two medals – silver in the Downhill and bronze in the Super-G. In 2020, Corinne took two speed awards (Downhill and Super-G), confirming her rise to power. With her first small crystal trophy, she became the first Swiss female skier to win the competition since Chantal Bournissen in 1991.
On 13 February 2021, on one of the most tour’s beautiful runs, the Olimpia delle Tofane in Cortina, Corinne crossed the finishing line with nine tenths of a second advantage. She won her first world championship title. The long-awaited star confirmed her potential, and was named best speed specialist in 2021.
