How did Tina Maze Make Her Money & Wealth?
Born on May 2, 1983, in SR Slovenia, Yugoslavia, Tina Maze began skiing when she was just three years old. Many years after putting on skis for the first time, she made her World Cup debut at the age of fifteen. Still, it wasn’t until 2002, that she reached the podium for the first time, after finishing second in the giant slalom event. Later that same year, she competed in her first Winter Olympic games in Park City, Utah, where she finished in twelfth place in the grand slalom.
Over the next few years, Maze won several races at the World Championships. In 2006, she also represented the United States for a second time at the Winter Olympics held in Italy, though she once again did not finish on the podium.
After taking a brief break, she came back stronger than ever at the 2009 World Championships, where she won the silver medal in the giant slalom. A year later, she also won two silver medals at the 2010 Winter Olympics; of course, these medals also came with a set amount of prize money.
On a winning streak, the skier went on to win three medals at the subsequent World Championships, two of which were gold. Following that, she was named to the Slovenian team for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Surpassing her previous success, Maze eventually won two gold medals for her country, one in downhill, and one in the giant slalom.
A record-breaking season for Maze, she later competed in a few races in 2015, though that soon stopped. That May, she announced that she would be taking a break from ski racing for a year. Just a few months later, however, she revealed that she would be retiring from competition. Her final race was that of the giant slalom event in Maribor.
On television, she had also made a few appearances in shows such as Inside Edition, and Zdravica.
