Back on the ice
After two months of ice practice break due to the Corona crisis, I was finally able to travel to Oberstdorf again and go back on the ice.
In addition to the ice training, I also started the sportmilitary in April, which lasts until August.
With seven weeks of trainingcamps during summer and three more weeks of intensive training, I have prepared myself for the season.
The first competition took place at the end of September, the Nebelhorn Trophy in Oberstdorf.
For the first time I landed a quad jump in a competition!
With a new personal best of over 210 points, I was able to place myself in 8th place despite three falls and I only missed the podium by eight points.
In both programs I got the points I needed to qualify for the World Championships.
There is still a lot of potential in both programs and a few more points to be made.
- Montalin Cup (Chur), 24.-25. Oct.
- Icelab Int. Cup (Bergamo), 06.-08. Nov.
- Autumn Trophy (Dortmund), 26.-29. Nov.
- Schweizermeisterschaften (Luzern), 12.-13. Dec.
Welcome to my Website
For more than 15 years I'm skating on the ice. Starting at the age of 7 in a children's group course, followed by the first training sessions with my coach up to my current 20 training hours per week on and off the ice. Today I am Swiss champion, member of the Swiss elite national team and representative of Switzerland at international championships.
Olympic Winter Games 2022 Beijing
Participants in the World Championships,
Top-20 of Europe,
Swiss champion 2020,
7 more medals at the Swiss Championships and
5 medals in international competitions
Due to the corona crisis, the Worldchampionships in Montreal was canceled. So my season ended earlier than planned.
Seasons Best in Den Hague
Four weeks after the European Championship, I traveled to The Hague for my next competition.
A good field of participants was waiting for me, including Shoma Uno, silver medalist at the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang and 19 other international competitors.
In the short program I showed a strong program and was able to place on the 6th intermediate rank despite a fall.
In the free skate I fought my way up to 4th place with another good program and a seasons best.
With 201.98 points I reached the 200 point mark again.
At the European Championships 2020 in January I successfully qualified for the final with my short program and achieved my minimum goal with the 22nd intermediate rank. In the free skate I fought my way up to 19th place and ended as one of the top 20 in Europe.
At the beginning of December I again defended the Swiss championship title with 20 points.
In November I started in the ISU Challenger series in Warsaw.
With a good short program, I finished 8th among 25 international competitors. Unfortunately I was not able to successfully show all my technical difficulties in the free program, but I still fought my way up two places and classified myself in good 6th place. So I secured further points for the world rankings.
6th place in Riga
A week earlier I flew to another competition in Riga. With a good short program, I placed on the 4th intermediate rank and was in good shape for the free program. Unfortunately the free skate did not go as expected and I had to accept some technical mistakes. It was enough for me to finish 6th, but I was only able to partially achieve my goals for this competition.
Season Start with bronze medal
Due to an ankle injury and a subsequent 6-week break from training, I clearly had a training deficit at the start of the season. Nevertheless, I was in relatively good shape and started the first international competition in Zagreb at the end of October. I won the bronze medal right at the beginning of the season.
Coach: Michael Huth and Alexei Pospelov
