The Pyeongchang Winter Olympics drew to a close with an exceptional haul for Julbo athletes. Thirteen medals, including three golds, were won by athletes from France, Italy, Germany, Norway and the Czech Republic.

Thirteen medals for Julbo athletes at Pyeongchang 2018

Martin Fourcade, the flag bearer of the French delegation, was the hero of the Olympic fortnight! All this success is the result of Julbo's ongoing investment in winter sports. Four years after Sochi, already significant for the medals of Martin Fourcade, Julbo has continued to expand its involvement with sportspeople. 75 athletes from different countries practicing a variety of sports (biathlon, Nordic skiing, ski cross and snowboard) were fitted out with Julbo products in Korea. The Jura brand shares the joy and emotions of its 15 medal winners on their return from the Winter Olympic Games.



Gold medalists
Pursuit and mass start: Martin Fourcade

In Pyeongchang, Martin Fourcade experienced every emotion out there. After eighth place in the sprint, the Pyrenean native retained his gold medal in the pursuit. He looked on course to pocket gold in the individual event, but missed the target on his last two shots. What came next certainly made up for it! A photo finish victory in the mass start and a first relay gold.


Mixed relay: Martin Fourcade / Simon Desthieux / Marie Dorin Habert

Marie Dorin Habert beamed at the cameras: "Can you say that again? We're Olympic champions!" France won the mixed relay for the first time, after a race perfectly controlled and concluded by Fourcade, the biathlon master. And for Dorin Habert, a gold medal was the ultimate accolade before drawing a line under her career.


Bronze medalists

Sprint: Veronika Vitkova (Czech Republic)

It's never too late to win! At 29 years of age, Czech athlete Veronika Vitkova won her first individual medal, four years after a silver in the mixed relay, taking third place in the sprint!

Women's relay: Marie Dorin Habert / Anaïs Chevalier

Marie Dorin Habert dreamt of it. Her wish was granted. The women on the French team, led by Anaïs Chevalier, bagged the bronze medal in the women's relay. In front of the cameras, she couldn't hold back her tears. She will soon be retiring from the slopes but the mark left by her is immense.


Silver medalist

Sprint and mixed relay: Dominik Windisch (Italy)

The Italian biathlete made the very most of his Olympic Games! Already a bronze medalist in the mixed relay in Sochi, Windisch repeated the exploit in Korea. He also took third place in the sprint, his first individual medal at this level.


Silver medalists

Sprint: Michal Krcmar (Czech Republic)

With only two World Cup podiums to his name, Czech athlete Michal Krcmar achieved the amazing feat of winning silver in the sprint. At the age of 27, this could be a turning point in his career.

Relay: Tarjei Boe (Norway)

The older Boe brother made sure he didn't leave Korea without getting on the podium! On the last day of competition, Boe and the Norwegian team climbed onto the second step in the men's relay, eight years after winning gold in Vancouver.




Bronze medalists

Relay: Maurice Manificat / Adrien Backscheider / Clément Parisse

A story of infectious happiness! On the finish line of the mixed relay, the clan in blue embrace and let the tears flow! Four years after Sochi, the French once again made the relay podium at the Games! Behind their leader Maurice Manificat, youngsters Adrien Backscheider and Clément Parisse did their jobs perfectly to bring home the bronze.


Team sprint: Maurice Manificat / Richard Jouve

Maurice Manificat makes no attempt to hide it: he just loves the relay! In the team sprint, the man from Haute-Savoie managed to win the first medal for France in this discipline. And in the quest, "Momo" could count on the solid performance of Richard Jouve, aged 23, winning a first medal at his first Games!



Silver medalist
Parallel giant slalom: Ramona Hofmeister (Germany)

At the age of just 21, the young German definitely didn't flunk her first Olympic Games, taking silver in the parallel giant slalom. After two World Cup victories since the beginning of her career, this achievement could be a launchpad for greater things!


Bronze medalist

Parallel giant slalom: Selina Jörg (Germany)

At the age of 30 and in her third Winter Games, Selina Jörg took home an Olympic medal at last!
