Slovenian skier Ilka Štuhec, known especially for her downhill achievements, has split from her coach Stefan Abplanalp after his contract was up in what was a unanimous decision.
The split was amicable, Štuhec’s team said. The Swiss became Štuhec’s coach in 2019 after she parted ways with Slovenia’s Grega Koštomaj in what was a surprising move due to their successful cooperation. The latest decision is considered less surprising as the skier has been having a couple of less successful seasons, also due to injuries.
