For my achievements in the past season, I received the Nidwalden Sports Award 2021 from Cantonal Councillor Res Schmid on Friday in the theater hall of the Kollegium St. Fidelis in Stans.
The laudation during the award ceremony was held by Rumo Lussi, my former ski coach at the Nidwalden Ski Association, from whose support I have benefited greatly. I feel very close to my home in Nidwalden, so I was all the more pleased to receive this award.
Success has many fathers and in my case of course also a strong mother. My parents and my family have supported me on my way since my early childhood, and have made this career and success possible for me in the first place. This award is therefore also a tribute to the merits of my family, whose support fills me with great gratitude.
