The Netherlands’ Jeroen Kampschreur has been voted the Allianz Athlete of the Month for January after an impressive sweep of titles at the World Para Alpine Skiing Championships.
The 19-year-old went five-for-five in the men’s sitting events at the Worlds, hosted jointly in Sella Nevea, Italy; and Kranjska Gora, Slovenia. Known more as a technical racer, he also proved uncatchable in the speed events. With the super-combined gold, Kampschreur succeeded in defending all of his three titles from 2017.
Kampschreur received 49 per cent of the public votes. Argentinian wheelchair tennis player Gustavo Fernandez was second with 32 per cent. Italian archer Alberto Simonelli, US Nordic skier Daniel Cnossen and French alpine skier Marie Bochet were also nominated.
The 2019 winners are:
