1 Stadium, 1 Chance, 1 Round, 10 Hurdles, 400 Metres.
Heartbeat, breathing, concentration, calm – rhythms characterise and shape my life. I love the rhythms of … my family, my friends, love and caring, a football match, Manchester United, Minimal House, a slow-paced evening, a carefree soul, the seaside waves, Cairo and Taegerwilen, Egypt and Switzerland, a light dinner accompanied by a good conversation, sports, achievement and disappointment, winning and losing, applause and a racing pulse, friendship, a handshake, an honest word, medical school, the doctor’s visit, birth, a diagnosis, world-class sports and studying, pressure and relief, nervousness and focus, concentration and alertness, my heart, my life, large championships, the Olympic Games, the victory ceremony, “Stadion Letzigrund”, the Swiss national anthem, day and night, the European Championship title, the rhythm of the 14th of August 2014, “on your marks – set – go”, tactfulness, and the rhythm of my life’s motto: Stay realistic and believe in the impossible.
