YULIYA LEVCHENKO: A YOUNG TALENT HEAD AND SHOULDERS ABOVE THE COMPETITION

YULIYA LEVCHENKO: A YOUNG TALENT HEAD AND SHOULDERS ABOVE THE COMPETITION

 

• Current World number 2 in the high jump
• Named Ukraine’s Best Female Athlete of the Year in 2017
• Will be wearing an RM 07-01 Automatic Ladies in Carbon TPT®

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. The youngest of Richard Mille’s partners, Yuliya will certainly find a place next to Mutaz Essa Barshim, her masculine counterpart and undisputed king of the discipline.

At just 20 years old, the lithe Slav—whose beauty is exceeded only by her performance on the track—is already shattering expectations. Born in Kiev, Yuliya trains indefatigably to become the best. ‘It has taken me seven years to reach this level, which is both a lot of time and no time at all. Everyone tells me that my progress has been extremely quick. Many female athletes take fifteen years or more to clear over two metres! So far, I’m quite pleased that I have managed to outdo myself at each major international event—I think I must be a born competitor. I love feeling the tension of the big competitions, overcoming my stress and pushing myself to the limit. In my experience, there’s nothing better than the feeling of satisfaction after clearing a height that you’ve never reached before.’

The young woman attracted attention at the age of 17, with a personal record of 1.83m at the Youth Olympic Games. She would go on to win the Olympic title, besting herself yet again by clearing the bar at 1.89m. From there, her career really took off: After winning a Bronze medal at the 2016 World Junior Athletics Championships, she claimed Gold in the U23 European Championships, followed by two silver medals at the 2017 Diamond League and World Athletics Championship. A born competitor who constantly strives to surpass herself, Yuliya has improved on her personal best with every event. This remarkable feat earned her the title of Best Female Athlete 2017 in her homeland, Ukraine.

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. ‘I used to think of watches mostly as fashion accessories,’ confides Yuliya. ‘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.’

With his keen eye for young talent—like Alexander Zverev, the world’s current #3 tennis player, who was #38 on the ATP Tour in 2016 when he joined the Richard Mille family, or Charles Leclerc, Alexis Pinturault and so many others—Richard Mille will accompany the young Ukrainian athlete in her sporting endeavours. On the field, she will leap for the gold wearing an RM 07-01 Automatic Ladies in Carbon TPT®.

AS PARIS AWAKES, THE RALLYE DES PRINCESSES RICHARD MILLE GETS UNDERWAY

AS PARIS AWAKES, THE RALLYE DES PRINCESSES RICHARD MILLE GETS UNDERWAY

AS PARIS AWAKES, THE RALLYE DES PRINCESSES RICHARD MILLE GETS UNDERWAY

The slumbering Vendôme Column was roused early on Sunday 3rd June when no fewer than 90 classic cars fired up their engines as the first rays of sun broke over the city. On board: 180 elegant women, drivers and co-drivers, all competitors in the Rallye des Princesses, now partnered with Richard Mille for the fourth year in a row. And for the first time in 19 editions, the rally set off in a south-west direction.
The brand’s aim is to offer a truly immersive experience. To achieve this, it supplied four 1963 Porsche 356s, one 911 from 1973, and one 1969 Mercedes Pagode 250sl. Six teams therefore got to experience a rally from the inside.

And what an experience, because this rally is certainly no walk in the park. Road book, regularity zone, compulsory check point, constant average speeds: the teams had their work cut out keeping up the pace. A pair needs to get up to speed with their complementary skills in the first few kilometres, as the work of one relies heavily on the directions of the other.

Heading towards Beauval Zoo, the competitors discovered the mythical RN20, basking in sunshine, a prerequisite in days gone by for holidaymakers on their way to the Pyrenees or Spain. Our teams came face to face with the nuances of the rally as they entered the first regularity zone and were obliged to keep as close as possible to the average speed. 50km/h is neither 49 nor 51km/h.
Powering the car forward at every turn and stop to compensate for these tiny losses. This first challenge was a tough one for novice drivers, who had to keep one eye on the timer, the other on the speedometer, and a third on the road, while following the precise instructions of the co-driver, nose buried in their notes.

The second day’s “Navigation and Castles” leg strained the sharp eyes of our co-drivers in Berry, Georges Sand country. And with a surprise guest too: the rain! But no mere morning shower. Torrential downpours. Weather like this is a constant concern for classic cars: in addition to the slowmoving windscreen wipers (of dubious effectiveness), the cars struggled with the heavy flooding, and some actually broke down. But thanks to some speedy assistance and the diligent organisers, most were able to hit the road again and complete the last stage of the leg to reach Vichy. During the evening’s cocktail reception there may have been some tired eyes but spirits were high as competitors regaled each other with the day’s exploits.

For the competitors, the previous day’s leg had been a chance to take stock of the rally; to get to grips with its pace and unforeseen challenges. So on the next day, the third, the 482 km journey towards Toulouse was seen as a decisive leg, but not an insurmountable one. Alas, the weather that day proved no better than the day before and went from bad to worse on the approach to the “Pink City”. So much so that actual landslides while passing through Aubrac forced the organisers to cancel some regularity challenges on the grounds of safety. For some teams, these torrents of water transformed their cars into swimming pools, and overwhelmed their mechanics. In the end, a day during which heavy rain was expected became a total nightmare.

In the early hours of the fourth day, and to celebrate the rally crossing onto Spanish soil, the sun decided to emerge in all its finery. For those in the many cabriolets competing this year, it was the perfect opportunity to unlatch the car’s hood and put on some sun cream. Climbing the legendary passes of Soulor and Aubisque via the Pourtalet pass, this was a day of intense driving. Powering through the twists and turns and some breathtaking scenery, the princesses pushed their cars’ mechanics to the max. When they arrived in Formigal, the second last leg of the rally, the 180 competitors were in Olympic shape, bolstered by a day blessed by the gods. And this was part of the excitement: no two days were alike, and each created unforgettable memories.

After travelling 1,500 km, the final leg reached the outskirts of Biarritz, where the princesses crossed the finish line in the Cité de l’Océan. For the organisers, it was time to check the counters. Once the points accumulated during the week had been verified, the final results could be announced. And so, to applause from the hundreds of spectators who had gathered to admire the racing cars, Adeline Paquiers and Héléna Euvrard in their AC Cobra were declared the winners, followed by Marie Périn and Edith Ragot in their MINI Cooper. A victory that pays tribute to the consistency and experience of a team that had taken part in several editions of the rally.

For Viviane Zaniroli, the race organiser, “This 19th edition was truly exciting and the 90 teams that took part certainly weren’t disappointed. The quantity and quality of this year’s participants was impressive and confirms the increasing popularity of the Rallye des Princesses Richard Mille, with 50% of this year’s entrants taking part for the very first time.”

The stage is now set for the 20th rally, an anniversary edition that promises to be an emotional one for the founders of women’s regularity racing, the Zaniroli family, with unwavering support from Richard Mille.

Precision, perseverance, determination and team work are values shared by the race participants and Richard Mille, who presented the new RM 71-01 Automatic Tourbillon Talisman only a few days before the race, the first automatic tourbillon calibre to be entirely developed by the watchmaker. A calibre that combines performance, a precious quality and beauty, just like the founder’s beloved classic racing cars. A timepiece that propels the brand into a new dimension and proclaims its lofty ambitions loud and clear.
