Biography

Lara Gut-Behrami is a Swiss racing skier who belongs to the National team of Swiss-Ski and is starting in all disciplines. She started skiing when she was 1 and a half. Her aunt’s first year’s present was a pair of skis which she used to put on her feet and walked all around the garden during summer 1992. Her first FIS races were during summer 2006. That winter she won her first Junior World Championship medal in Altenmarkt Zachensee, Austria, it was a silver in Downhill. The same year she became the second youngest all time winner in Super-G at the Swiss National Championship and  finished second in the Downhill standing of the Europa Cup. In December 2007 I made my World Cup debut in Giant Slalom, in Lienz.
