Lindsey Vonn isn’t completely changing her sponsors; the Olympic champion has re-signed a contract with LEKI to train and compete exclusively with LEKI poles and gate guards. The four-year deal guarantees Vonn will be representing the company through the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia.

“Lindsey is one of the most dominant and exciting ski racers in the world today. We are thrilled to have LEKI play a part in her goals and accomplishments over the next four years,” said Greg Wozer, Vice President of LEKI USA.

The renewal allows Vonn to continue relying on LEKI’s revolutionary Trigger S grip system, the first “ski pole binding” system in the world. Trigger S is an integrated quick release security system where skiers literally click in and out of the grip with one simple hand movement.

The move to stay with LEKI follows a flurry of business activity for Vonn as she has just inked new deals with Briko for helmets and Oakley for eyewear.
