Italy’s Andrea Vötter makes her comeback

Andrea Vötter

Altenberg (RWH): Andrea Vötter of Italy, who finished sixth at the season opener in Innsbruck-Igls and thus secured the best result of her career, is returning to the Viessmann World Cup in time for Altenberg. The 22-year-old from South Tirol, who won the 2014 Junior World Championships, was unable to compete in Winterberg as she was taking part in military training in Nepal.

Thinking ahead to the Junior World Championships on Altenberg’s DKB Ice Track at the start of February 2018, head coach Armin Zöggeler has also brought the up-and-coming pair Ivan Nagler/Fabian Malleier back onto the Italian team.
