Floris Meijer on track for the Paralympics 2018

Our Custom Connect mascot Floris Meijer is competing very well. He finished 5th in the Obersaxen race (in Switzerland) in his last major slalom race of the season. An amazing result, as Floris had to recover from a recent, and inconvenient injury. Floris’ season was overall very successful, gaining more than enough points for admission to the superG World Cup races.

Points were given in each classification and gender in the giant slalom, super combined and super-G in the IPC Alpine Skiing Europa Cup Finals, and the final high-level races for the of the season in Switzerland (16-18 March).

Around 60 skiers from 16 countries attempted to secure overall men’s and women’s sitting, standing and visually impaired titles.

The Dutch Adaptive Alpine Ski Team also performed well this season. The team consists of ten athletes, both men and women. Five of them are in the national selection and five are promising talents. Floris is in the latter category. In Obersaxen, team members won gold, silver and bronze in various disciplines.

Floris’ next challenge is 2016/2017 season’s Worldcup Series. And after that: the Paralympics in Pyeongchang (South-Korea). Go Floris, Go!
