Tessa Worley was born in Annemasse on 4 October 1989.
Twice Giant Slalom world champion (Schladming 2013 and St. Moritz 2017) and winner of the Giant Slalom World Cup in 2017, she is considered one of the very finest skiers in this discipline.
She won her first World Cup race at the age of just 18, in Aspen, when she managed to climb up 8 positions during the second leg.
She totalled 685 points to take home the “crystal ball” trophy in 2017, chalking up three victories, three second places and one third place during the season.
Tessa is not just a Giant Slalom champion, however, and also has her sights set on the Super-G, where she is determined to make her mark. She undoubtedly has all the qualities required to succeed: technically flawless and perfectly comfortable when the going gets tough.
With a French mother and Australian father, Tessa has frequented the mountains since she was a child, chasing the winter on both sides of the globe. This has allowed her to train constantly and with dedication all year round.
After missing the Sochi Olympics in 2014 due to a severe knee injury, she is finally ready for the Olympic adventure that will take her to Pyeongchang in February, where she’ll have a brand-new fan: Colmar.
