To fight the hardest Ironman in the world on Hawaii with strong stomach problems and not be able to absorb energy – then that is a matter of impossibility. Daniela Ryf finished her Ironman nevertheless, what a great performance. The smile will come back!?♂️?♀️?♀️?
For almost 30 years I have reported on athletics: From the Bieler Tagblatt to Radio Canal3 to SRF Radio and SRF TV. We set up “Jugend trainiert mit Weltklasse Zürich”, the European Championships in Athletics and much more. And now, finally, the success has arrived. The youngsters storm to the top and the established ones deserve to win their medals. Congratulations and thank you: Mujinga Kambundji and her team! ??
Mujinga Kambundji, Kariem Hussein or Lea Sprunger: thanks to the CITIUS meeting, Bern is once again able to offer the finest in athletics with Swiss stars.

Today’s Sunday could also be a relaxed day – not at Geigele Communications. Today we are in Magglingen for Switzerland’s biggest disabled sports festival with 1400 athletes. Ironman winner Daniela Ryf will take part in the Ironman in Klagenfurt, triathlete Nicola Spirig will start on the second day of her comeback in Hamburg and Jolanda Neff will compete at the World Cup Cross Country in Andorra. There’s a lot going on! We wish our athletes all the best and keep our fingers crossed.
