Christina "Tina" Weirather (born May 24, 1989) is a World Cup alpine ski racer from Liechtenstein.

Racing career[edit]

Born in Vaduz, she is the daughter of former World Cup ski racers Harti Weirather of Austria and Hanni Wenzel of Liechtenstein (and the niece of Andreas Wenzel). Weirather has competed on the World Cup circuit since 2005 and has ascended six podiums through November 2012. Her best World Cup result is a win in Super G in 2013.

Weirather competed in two events at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy, and finished 33rd in the Super-G, and DNF in the Downhill. She had qualified to ski in four events at the 2010 Winter Olympics: Downhill, Super-G, Giant slalom and the Combined, however, on 23 January, while competing in a World Cup downhill at Cortina, Weirather suffered a cruciate ligament injury and missed the Olympics,[1] as well as the following World Cup season of 2011.

Following years of training alongside her compatriots on the Liechtenstein Alpine Ski team, Weirather now trains with the Swiss team.[2] She currently resides in Gamprin.

With five World Cup podiums in 2012, Weirather had her best season to date, and finished second in the downhill and ninth in the overall season standings.
