Biography

From high bib numbers to the top of the World Cup There is hardly a more impressive way to ski to the top end of the World Cup: Albert Popov did it in three races in one month. In December 2018, the Bulgarian athlete started with bib number 72 and finished in 16th place in the Slalom in Madonna di Campiglio. In January 2019, he finished ninth in the Kitzbühel Slalom with bib number 71. And just three days later he achieved his best World Cup result so far: sixth place in the night slalom in Schladming with bib number 46. At the Junior World Championships 2018, Albert Popov won Bronze in Giant Slalom. The Bulgarian athlete has proven his mental strength following the shock of a serious car accident in which his coach Drago Grubelnik was killed in Sölden in 2015.
