Virtual sponsor gathering to kick-off 2021
Special circumstances for Nicola Spirig's annual gathering with her sponsors. For the first time, the meeting took place in virtual form and was streamed as a live event format from the NEP Switzerland production studios near Zurich.
Looking back at 2020, the two-time Olympic medalist did so optimistically, despite the postponement of the Olympic Games and her crash in training, which saw her suffer from a fractured radius head in her elbow. These days, Spirig rarely feels any lingering effects from the injury and instead is focused on training for her fifth Olympic games in Tokyo this summer. Preparations may include a training camp in Gran Canaria in the near future, depending on the feasibility and safety of such a camp during the current pandemic.
Nicola Spirig would like to thank the following partners for their invaluable support: Gaz Energie, Raiffeisen, Ochsner Sport, Land Rover, Descente, St. Moritz, On Running, Atupri, Lian Chinaherb, Specialized und Bico.
