For years, Austria´s most successful wintersports athlete fascinates the global world of sports. But not only the world of sports is thrilled, this year Austria´s sports journalists were in total agreement as rarely ever before. With a huge margin, Anna Gasser won „Athlete of the Year“ for the second time in a row.
A couple of days ago Austria´s most important sports charity event, the „Lotterien-Sporthilfe“ Gala, took place in Vienna´s Marx-Arena. Pure excitement until the very last second, as who would follow Anna Gasser as „Athlete of the Year?“ But same as last year, the Carinthian snowboard pro clearly suceeded over her competitors. With her gold medal in Peyongchang she directly jumped to the top of this influential ranking.
„I am overjoyed about winning here and I am proud that I could convince the jury again.“ Anna said happily „I had a great season and I really hope, that I will be able to keep the upcoming season at this high level.“
Even Anna´s new sponsor partners, Andrea and Alfred Riedl, owners of Jacques Lemans were there and watched the ceremony. „It´s amazing what Anna accomplished within this very short period of time. She is determined, still has her whole career in front of her, she really deserved to win this trophy.“ Alfred Riedl explained and added „And we are really proud, that we signed Anna as the new brand ambassador for Jacques Lemans. She is extremely successful on an international level, especially in the US she is a star. We are looking forward to this partnership and to lots of exciting projects.“
This cooperation has only just begun, but is already supposed to be further intensified in 2019. In the meantime, the young Austrian is quite busy. „A proper time management is crucial for my success.“ Anna Gasser confessed „but with no other watch I can keep my schedule and plan my time as perfectly as with these beautiful Jacques Lemans watches.“
