“These intimate portraits tell the stories of three world class athletes who use their extraordinary abilities each day to achieve amazing feats."
The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and International Paralympic Partner Allianz have produced a video series named ´Limitless´ featuring talented Para alpine skiers Robin Cuche of Switzerland, Millie Knight of Great Britain and Anna Schaffelhuber of Germany.
The videos show all three athletes both on the slopes and in behind-the-scene more personal situations, aiming to showcase how they share the dream of succeeding in the international stage with their talent on the snow and in life.
Paralympic Sports, the Para athletes’ achievements, mountain landscapes and stunning alpine skiing sceneries are included in the series, which has been launched with less than a month to go until the three skiers compete at the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games.
“These intimate portraits tell the stories of three world class athletes who use their extraordinary abilities each day to achieve amazing feats,“ said Craig Spence, the IPC’s Director of Media and Communications.
“The stories of the athletes demonstrate in emotional manner how passion, courage and discipline can help to push boundaries every day,” added Jean-Marc Pailhol, Head of Group Market Management and Distribution. “To experience these stories is one of the best reasons to support the Paralympic movement and their athletes as a long-term international partner.”
The collaborative content production between Allianz and IPC also blends with the recently launched “Global Explorer Program” from Allianz SE. Under #ExploreWithUs, this long-term initiative aims to reach and encourage curious people worldwide, who are keen to share their explorative journeys and experiences.
In addition to its partnership with the IPC since 2006, the Allianz also partners with World Para Athletics and 16 National Paralympic Committees (NPCs): Argentina, Colombia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Egypt, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Mexico, Morocco, Poland, Slovakia, Sri Lanka, Switzerland and United Kingdom.
