Schweizerfinal UBS Kids Cup Team

What a fantastic atmosphere it must have been on the Swiss final UBS Kids Cup team in the Wankdorfhalle Bern. 800 kids spread across 144 teams fought for victory in 12 categories. They were cheered on by 1500 spectators.

Anyone who has ever been there as an athlete or spectator knows how exciting and nerve-racking the whole event is.


Biberist actively qualified the 5 athletes, Marilena Scheidgger, Alyssa Gasche, Elena Bucher, Linda von Leuuven and Anina Schmid for the Swiss final.

They started as a team of LG Solothurn WEST.


In the disciplines hurdles relay and multiple jump Challenge unfortunately they did not quite come up with their best performance in the preliminary rounds and lost valuable points here. With motivating slogans by their coach Fabienne Allenspach and the loud exclamations of their parents they gave full throttle in biathlon and completed the most laps and thus the victory in this discipline.

The demanding final teamcross was marked by falls. However, the 5 athletes fought until the end and reached the excellent 8th final place.


Despite the very strong competition, they fought until the very end and did not give up. Congratulations!
