This is the official press release published by the Laver Cup organization
Laver Cup organizers announced today that HEAD, a leading racquet and ball manufacturer, has signed a multi-year deal to become a global sponsor of the event starting with this year’s edition to be held at the iconic TD Garden in Boston from September 24-26, 2021.
The HEAD World Cup Rebels caused a sensation at the Alpine World Ski Championships in Cortina, where they won seven of the twelve individual Gold medals - in all four speed discipline events, in both Giant Slaloms and in the men's Parallel event. The HEAD team also produced three double World Champions: Lara Gut-Behrami, Mathieu Faivre and Vincent Kriechmayr. A total of twelve medals went to the best ski brand at the World Championships.
The HEAD World Cup Rebels continue to cause a sensation at the World Championships in Cortina: The HEAD team won all four Gold medals in the speed disciplines, a Gold in the Parallel event and both Gold medals in the Giant Slalom with Lara Gut-Behrami and Mathieu Faivre. That puts the two HEAD team stars in the footsteps of one of the greatest ski athletes of all time: Ted Ligety - aka Mr Giant Slalom - who crossed the finishing line in his unique career during the World Championships.
In 2017 Mathieu Faivre won Gold in the Team event at the World Championships in St. Moritz. In Cortina the French athlete celebrated his first individual Gold medal in the Parallel Slalom on Tuesday, the début appearance of this format at a World Championship. His compatriot Alexis Pinturault won his second medal in Cortina by following up Bronze in the Super-G with Silver in the Combined event on Monday. In the Team event on Wednesday, Norway bagged Gold with HEAD World Cup Rebel Fabian Wilkens Solheim.
It does appear as some skiers have a special deal with the universe. A relation with gravity based on a different set of rules than the rest of us. Is this why Sam Kuch floated up to the freeriding stratosphere on a star-studded wagon? Or is he just a damn good skier. Maybe the best?
The HEAD World Cup Rebels dominate the speed events at the World Championships in Cortina. Gold medals in the Super-G by Lara Gut-Behrami and Vincent Kriechmayr are followed by two more Golds in the Downhill competitions. Vincent Kriechmayr is king of the speed events in the World Cup, bagging his second victory in Cortina on Sunday in the Downhill. The fastest women athlete in Cortina is Corinne Suter, winning her first Gold medal at a World Championship on Saturday in the Downhill and Silver in the Super-G.
World Championship Gold. Finishing just behind the Swiss athlete, her compatriot and HEAD team-mate Corinne Suter secured Silver. A few hours later Vincent Kriechmayr followed up with Gold in the men's Super-G. Bronze went to Alexis Pinturault.
The last two races before the World Championships in Cortina were held in Garmisch-Partenkirchen this weekend. Austria's speed rebels Vincent Kriechmayr and Matthias Mayer sealed a HEAD double victory in the Super-G on Saturday. In the Downhill on Friday, two HEAD World Cup Rebels also raced to podium finishes with Beat Feuz in second place and Matthias Mayer third.
