The two former ski stars Marusa Ferk and Christophe Saioni have become parents for the first time and now have other priorities than sport.
Munich – The new Ski World Cup season is just around the corner. In a few weeks, it will start again on the slopes of this world. Marusa Ferk and Christophe Saioni are no longer with us. The couple has been putting their skis in the corner for a long time and devoting themselves to new projects. The duo only watches the World Cup circus from a distance.

Ski couple has daughter
At the moment, however, the focus is entirely on the family anyway, because Marusa Ferk recently gave birth to a healthy daughter. "Our little girl is here. Now there are three of us," she wrote under a photo on her Instagram channel, which shows her with her husband and little Romi. Ferk writes that little Romi would definitely become athletic and grow up trilingual.
Under the posted picture, Ferk received numerous congratulations from friends and acquaintances, but also from fans. For the couple, an exciting time is now beginning, in which everything will revolve around the offspring. Sport is now not a priority in the lives of the two former ski stars.
