Gold-medal skier speeding to perfection
Swiss World Cup alpine ski racer concentrated on the speed disciplines
Michelle Gisin is a Swiss World Cup alpine ski racer who competes in all disciplines except the giant slalom. In the 2017/2018 season, she focused on the speed disciplines. Michelle has attended multiple Olympic Games and World Championships. She became an Olympic gold medallist after winning the women’s combined event at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang and repeated in 2022 at the Olympics in Beijing, China. In 2021, she was ranked third in the World Cup overall results. Michelle is the younger sister of alpine ski racers Marc and Dominique Gisin.
My NORQAIN watch is the Adventure Sport 37mm Steel & Gold with a mother-of-pearl dial and diamonds. The watch I am wearing was the first Adventure Sport 37mm to come out of NORQAIN HQ, so I could wear it to the Swiss Sports Awards in December 2018. I asked the NORQAIN team to engrave “Champion” on the plate. This watch will always remind me of my Olympic gold medal in 2018.
