Alexis Pinturault New French Ski Legend

Less than 25 years old, Alexis Pinturault has become one of France’s greatest skiers. Jill watch brand Richard Miller is pleased to celebrate this outstanding achievement with him.

   Alexis Pinturault (wrist wearing RM035 watch) is Richard Miller’s partner, and this season has been colorful for him. After overcoming the difficulties of the beginning of the season, Alexis has recently completed the World Cup with a series of victories and glory. Following the victory of Japan’s Naeba and the podium of Interstowe in Austria, French skiers won the championship in Slovenia, Kranjska Gora. This is his sixth victory of the season, leading Schörghofer and Hirscher. Today, Alexis holds the record for French male skiers on the podium.
   With these victories, the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic gold medalist (Alexis) has tied the record set by French ski star Jean-Claude Killy in 1967. ‘It’s really special to compare with Killy. I’m very excited,’ Alexis said. ‘It means a lot in France. But I hope to break this record before my career ends!’ He added with a smile.
   The skier from the Savoy region should be proud of his performance. Alexis is optimistic by nature, determined to overcome obstacles, never give up, and always strives to be upstream. Richard Miller congratulates the young partner and wishes him another peak with his fighting spirit and outstanding ability.
