Next weekend the time has finally come: then the World Cup season begins at the Ski Circus. Shortly before Sölden began, a message made waves at the German ski team.

In early 2019, a young Canadian caught the attention of the ski scene. We’re talking about Ronnie Remay: Out of nowhere, the then 23-year-old finished second in the Cranes Montana Alpine Combi thus securing his first World Cup podium. A few days earlier, at the World Ski Championships in Ore, she missed a major coup: the all-rounder also finished fifth in the combination and was very close to a medal, which did not come.

It looked as if Reme had achieved his breakthrough that season. But in the years that followed, things got a little worse. The Canadian couldn’t repeat her best winter ever, especially with the North American going downhill over the past two seasons. His best result was a 17th place in the Zagreb slalom. Result: in the summer, Ronnie Remay no longer appeared in the team for the Canadian national team. But this did not matter to her, because the 26-year-old had a new plan in her pocket: she would debut for the German ski team in the future.

Remay, who has participated in two Olympic Games, announced this on social media on Wednesday. “I will represent Germany in the coming season,” says the all-rounder, whose grandmother is from Germany. “I am honored and very excited about this opportunity that I am getting. Many thanks also to the team, who gave me a warm welcome and made this big change a little less difficult.

Remay, who is primarily active in the downhill, super-G and slalom disciplines, also has different words for his Canadian fans: “I loved every minute that I rode for the Canadian team. I will never forget those years. Thank you very much for the support.” In the coming season, the German ski team will be enriched with an extremely interesting personality.
