Petra Vlhová gets the most out of training with Coach Livio Magoni (and Human Tecar)

14 December, 2016 - Categories: Sport

Born in Liptovský Mikuláš, Slovakia, on June 13, 1995, Petra Vlhová can ski her way to the podium faster than you or I can say Liptovský Mikuláš. At 17, she won a gold medal in the 2012 Winter Youth Olympics; at 19, she won gold again in the slalom competition at the 2014 Alpine Junior World Ski Championships in Jasná, Slovakia; her first World Cup podium came in December 2015 – gold again, at Åre, Sweden; then a surprise bronze in Levi, Finland in November 2016… She has been hailed as a major revelation in 2016 and is the youngest of the top ten female slalom skiers in the world (closely followed by US-born Mikaela Shiffrin, exactly three months older).

Understandably, the Slovak is under a lot of pressure this season to keep up the great work – and even improve it. In spring of this year, she announced she was “delighted” to be teaming up with a new personal trainer, the Italian Livio Magoni, who famously – and successfully – collaborated with Tina Maze for three years, and was instrumental to the renaissance of Italian women’s skiing in 2013-2014 and 2014-2015.

Petra, who is extremely popular in her home country, was guaranteed the best possible training conditions by the Slovak skiing federation – trainer included. In turn, Coach Livio Magoni was determined to introduce the Human Tecar MO into the young athlete’s daily routine – and we have no doubt our technology and method, Magoni’s technical and strategic brilliance and Vlhová’s enormous talent will turn out to be a winning combination.
