We have been close to the sports world for several years now, particularly alpine skiing, with which we share the positive values of facing and overcoming any challenge, in life, in sports or at work.
This year, we have renewed the collaboration with three champions who are engaged in different specialities and will form TEAM TARGA for the 2022/23 season: Zrinka Ljutić, River Radamus and Renè De Silvestro.
“Once again, we are thrilled to be able to support this group of talented athletes who have chosen sports, with all the great sacrifices it entails, as the activity at the centre of their lives. Practising a sport at professional level requires constantly setting new personal goals and stepping out of the comfort zone on a daily basis.
This is the same commitment we ask from our team at Targa Telematics, because it is only with the right amount of enthusiasm, grit, and the will to go beyond one’s limits that a company can make a difference.”
Nicola De Mattia
CEO of Targa Telematics
Renè De Silvestro was born in 1996 and he is a young Paralympic athlete who has now become one of the strongest assets of the National ski team.
After taking part in the Pyeongchang Olympics (2018) and winning numerous placings, he achieved his first victory in the 2019/2020 World Cup, followed by two podiums. The following year, Renè won twice at the SG and GS in Veysonnaz and placed third at the giant slalom in Kranjska Gora.
The 2021/2022 season was even more successful for Renè: he came first at the sitting category of Supercombi, he won in GS and came third three times at the World Cup. He also won a gold medal in SC and a bronze in SG at the World Para Snow Sports Championships in Lillehammer. Finally, he stood twice on the podium at the Beijing 2022 Paralympic Winter Games with a silver and a bronze medal, which led him to receive an honorary title by the Italian President of the Republic, Sergio Mattarella.
Zrinka Ljutić is one of the rising stars of world skiing. Born in 2004, the talented athlete from Zagreb has been taking part in FIS competitions since November 2020.
In her first season in the FIS category, in 2020/2021, she showcased her skills at the World Cup right from the start. She achieved two victories in the European Cup: the first (which was also her first podium) on January 26th 2021 in Zell am See in the Special Slalom and the second in Krvavec, Slovenia, in the Giant Slalom.
A second win came at the 2021/22 season’s European Cup, a first and a third place at the World Junior Ski Championships in Panorama, Canada, which was followed by a splendid fifth place in the Courchevel/Meribel Slalom in the last World Cup stage.
River Radamus, born in 1998, is a promising American skiing athlete specialised in Giant Slalom, Super-G and Slalom.
At just 23 years of age, he held an impressive record at junior level, including three gold medals at the Winter Youth Olympic Games (2016) and five medals at the Junior World Championships, including two golds won just in 2019 in Val di Fassa.
In the 2021-2022 season, River came sixth in the World Cup in Solden and Alta Badia, and finished fourth in Giant Slalom and Team Parallel at the Beijing Olympic Games.
In July 2022, the partnership with the Druscié Ski Club of Cortina, a leading sports club in the international arena that Targa Telematics has long supported, was renewed.
The sponsorship, aimed at supporting the Club and its athletes, stems from a common passion for sports and a strong sharing of values and goals to support the growth of young talents.
