High jump athlete @levchenkou joins Richard Mille.
Specialist in the high jump, Yuliya Levchenko has catapulted to stardom. In just four years, she has gone from clearing 1.70m to a performance of 2.01m at the latest World Championships in London, an exploit that earned her a silver medal.
Richard Mille relishes working with such high-performance athletes. His very personal relationship with the brand’s partners, which finds form in watchmaking developments, is reinforced by a shared desire for ever greater performance. The high jump especially requires absolute precision, perfect technique, and a superlative power-to-weight ratio.
‘What I like about Richard Mille is the idea of bringing together the “friends of the brand.” it’s like a team. Some are sportspeople, but others are not. There are also artists and actors. I love this vision; it’s almost as if I’ve joined a new family. Everyone knows that sport brings people together—and it seems as though Richard Mille does so too’, confides Yuliya.
On the field, she will leap for the gold wearing an RM 07-01 Automatic Ladies in Carbon TPT.
