THEY MADE IT! FOUR SWISS ROWERS SECURE THEIR TICKET TO RIO OLYMPICS

The tension lasted until the final stroke of oars yesterday in Aiguebelette, France, during the semi-finals of the world championships. The Swiss crew made it to third place, outdistancing their opponents by a fraction of a second after what was a truly spectacular race. This achievement leads the four Swiss Augustin Maillefer, Roman Röösli, Barnabé Delarze and Nico Stahlberg to the finals this Saturday, but more importantly ensures that they are officially qualified to the Olympic Games in Rio next year.

As a partner of World Rowing, Parmigiani Fleurier warmly congratulates the young athletes, wishes them luck for the finals tomorrow and looks forward to seeing the Swiss colours so promisingly represented next year in Brazil.
