Coldwell Banker Mason Morse Sponsors Local Olympic Alpine Skier
Posted by Kim Briscoe — January 7, 2014
ASPEN, CO - As part of its continued commitment to support the sport of skiing, Coldwell Banker Mason Morse is sponsoring local Olympic Alpine Skier, Alice McKennis of New Castle, Colorado, in her quest for a medal at the Winter Olympics in Sochi.
“Alice isn’t only a talented competitor, but also a warm, friendly, and humble person,” said Karim Souki, vice president of development at CBMM. "We live in a community made famous by its ski runs. As the longest running real estate business in the valley, CBMM believes we have a responsibility to support that legacy. We are delighted and honored to help one of our local athletes compete on the world stage.”
The Colorado native burst on to the scene in the 2009-2010 World Cup season with a 10th place finish in Downhill in her third World Cup race ever. She then qualified for the 2010 Olympic team in her rookie season racing on the World Cup Circuit.
After an injury early in the season of 2010-2011, McKennis made her return to snow the next summer in preparation for the 2011- 2012, season and even after limited training had a strong season that included three top 10 results including 10th place in the Downhill at the Olympic test event in Sochi, Russia.
In 2012- 2013 McKennis had her first podium appearance after winning what’s arguably the most challenging Women’s Downhill – the course in St. Anton, Austria. McKennis finished the season with a world rank of 10th, but as fate would have it she suffered another injury just before the season’s end where she shattered her right tibia plateau and fractured her tibia in a downhill crash in Garmisch, Germany. She has made a full recovery and now has her sights on the Winter Olympics in Sochi.
