NOTE! Athlete background is outdated, last updated August 2010
Comes from the French speaking part of Switzerland. Had his big breakthrough in WOC 2005 with silver and bronze. Did not run EOC 2006 as he was finishing on his studies to be a dentist, but decided his shape was so good that he could do well at WOC. He was rewarded with another Silver. Missed the long final at WOC 2007 with illness, after winning his qualification heat. Struggeled with an injury in spring 2008, restricting him to only running shorter races, and only managed a 14th place at WOC long in Olomouc in 2008. Improved to a 12th place in WOC in Hungary in 2009, and further to a 5th place at EOC in Bulgaria in 2010. Living together with Sandra Zurcher of the USA-team.
