The traditional Wordcup „Lucerne Regatta“ took place this weekend in Lucerne. In the Swiss focus was the lightweight foursome with Mario Gyr, Simon Niepmann, Simon Schürch and Lucas Tramèr.
Our ambassador Mario Gyr and his rowing colleagues reached the A-final on Sunday without any problems. In the thrilling final they won the silver medal just behind the team from New Zealand. With this success, the Swiss also won the World Cup Championship. We congratulate Mario Gyr for these great results.
Despite the rainy weather, the Swiss team was loudly supported and cheered of numerous fans, including some VIP guests of Les Ambassadeurs clientele, which all cheered and applaud in the Lake Side Lounge. After the race, Mario Gyr and Simon Schürch (captain) came by personally to greet the Les Ambassadeurs guests and exchanged some impressions of the day.
Some of these impressions can be seen in our gallery:
