"Be yourself, because the original is worth more than a copy"
This motto on her website says a lot about Lara Gut-Behrami, because she likes to go her own way. And from early on has been very successful in doing so. The Swiss athlete bagged her first World Cup victory in the Super-G in St. Moritz in 2008 aged 17 years and eight months. Her record of being the youngest skier to have stood on top of the podium in this discipline still stands today. Since then, Lara Gut-Behrami has extended her list of successes season after season. One of her greatest successes so far was winning the overall World Cup in 2015/16 - in the season when she switched to HEAD. She comes from the Ticino region of Switzerland and has also been at the top of the Super-G overall ranking on three occasions. In 2021, she was double World Champion in the Super-G and Giant Slalom in Cortina d'Ampezzo. In 2022, she won her first Olympic Gold in Beijing in the Super-G. And she has won a total of 34 individual World Cup victories by the end of the 2021/22 season. Although she is on the ski slopes almost all year round, she loves warm weather, the beach, the sea and the summer. She also likes reading and baking. She has been married to the Swiss footballer Valon Behrami since 2018 and has used the name Gut-Behrami ever since.
