4. January 2015.
The traditional dm Zagreb Ski Legends charity race will take place on Sunday, 4 January, at 16:15, following the Audi FIS Ski World Cup Vip Snow Queen Trophy 2015 – Zagreb/Sljeme ladies’ slalom race. For the fifth time now this charity competition will gather the big names in the history of skiing, to compete in parallel giant slalom; for the first time ever they will be joined by a number of Croatian celebrities and public figures.
The ski legends and the public figures will go down Sljeme’s Crveni Spust course in parallel giant slalom to gather the necessary and important funds for humanitarian purposes. As the sponsor of the legends’ race, dm will once again make a donation to the Hospital for Chronically Ill Children in Gornja Bistra in the form of an annual supply of the necessary hygienic and cosmetic products. Furthermore, dm will make a donation to the Forum for Quality Foster Care, Croatia’s first foster associations’ network.
For the first time ever ski legends Michaela Dorfmeister, Kalle Palander, Marco Büchel, Paul Accola and Jure Franko will join our Janica Kostelić, Ana Jelušić and Nika Fleiss in the charity race. There are also those who will return to the dm Zagreb Ski Legends race as the favourites of the Zagreb fans, namely, Alberto Tomba, Marc Girardelli, Bojan Križaj, Atle Skaardal, Hans Enn, Peter Müller, Thomas Sykora, Kristian Ghedina, Jure Košir, Matjaž Vrhovnik and Urška Hrovat. Thus, in terms of the skiers participating in it, this year’s legends’ race will be the best so far.
Finally, this year the organiser made sure the Sljeme spectators would be treated to an additional surprise. At the start gate the ski legends will be joined by TV presenters Barbara Štrbac and Nevena Rendelli, singer Marko Tolja, personal fitness coach Mario Valentić, music producer Nikša Bratoš, actor Filip Juričić and fashion designer Matija Vujica. These Croatian celebrities will use the occasion to show not only their kind-heartedness but also their competitive side and skiing prowess. The race between Barbara Štrbac and Alberto Tomba is guaranteed to be quite a special attraction.
