Slovenian Skiing Legend Welcomes Newborn, Reflects on Career and Future

From Slopes to Motherhood

In a joyful announcement, a former Slovenian ski champion recently revealed the birth of her daughter, Romi. The news arrived on September 21, 2023, and filled the hearts of fans and fellow athletes with warmth. The retired skier and her French husband, Christophe Saioni, are thrilled about this next phase of their life together. The couple, who tied the knot in 2020 in the picturesque resort of Nice, are eager to embark on the journey of parenthood.

Trilingual and Sport-loving: The Couple’s Vision for their Daughter

With parents hailing from different cultural backgrounds, the couple intends to raise Romi as a trilingual child, embracing Slovenian, French, and English. They also plan to instill in her a love for sports, inspired by their own athletic careers. The former skier’s passion for her sport and the couple’s shared love for physical activity will undoubtedly play a significant role in shaping Romi’s upbringing.

Reflecting on a Dazzling Skiing Career

The former skier, who retired from professional skiing last year, boasts an impressive career. Even though she was not part of the Slovenian national team in her final seasons, she made a significant impact on the sport. Her career spanned multiple years, earning her the record for the longest career among Slovenian skiers.

The athlete made her World Cup debut in 2007, and over the years, she made a total of 225 appearances. Her most notable achievement came in 2009, when she clinched third place in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, marking her only podium finish. Despite this being her lone top-three finish, it goes down in history as a significant milestone, not only in her career but also in the annals of Slovenian skiing.

Transitioning from Professional Skiing to Personal Life

Post-retirement, the former ski champion has smoothly transitioned into her personal life. Her new role as a mother symbolizes a new chapter, far removed from the snowy slopes and competitive races. However, the values she upheld during her athletic career, including dedication, perseverance, and a love for sports, continue to guide her in this new phase of her life.

The former skier’s plans for raising her daughter reflect her priorities and the importance she places on language and sports. As she steps into the shoes of a mother, she carries with her the lessons learned from her skiing career, ready to pass them on to the next generation.

A Continual Influence on Slovenian Skiing

Even though the former skier has hung up her professional boots, her influence on Slovenian skiing continues. Her record-breaking career longevity and World Cup podium finish will always be remembered as significant contributions to the sport. As she embarks on the journey of motherhood, her story serves as an inspiration for future generations of Slovenian skiers, proving that a passion for sports and personal growth can coexist harmoniously.
