New York, NY (PRUnderground) February 10th, 2023
Revo, the global leader in high-quality performance sunglasses, celebrates today the gold medal win of its sunglass ambassador, alpine ski racer Marta Bassino, at the Alpine Ski World Championships in Meribel, France. Bassino bested her American rival, Mikaela Shiffrin, by 11-hundredths of a second in the Women’s Super-G on Wednesday. The win gives Italy its second gold medal at the Championships.
“The entire Revo team is so excited by Marta’s incredible win. We couldn’t be more proud of her,” said Revo CEO, Cliff Robinson. “Our team of sunglass ambassadors continues to impress us with their athletic talent and amazing accomplishments.”
While not known as a Super-G competitor, Bassino mastered the second half of the course with a series of highly technical late turns that gave her the win over Shiffrin, who many considered the favorite going into the challenge.
The Alpine Ski World Championships are an Olympic-style competition held every two years.
“Winning a gold medal for Italy is a dream come true,” said Marta Bassino, who has won six World Cup races over the course of her career. “Revo has been a very supportive sponsor and I love my Revo sunglasses. On the slopes and off, their state-of-the-art lens technology provides clarity, protection, and gold medal-worthy style.”
