Swiss National rooster selected

28 July 2010 14:01

Ursina Haller and high flyer Patrick Burgener, who made it all the way from the c-squad up to the top five halfpipe specialists due to his huge potential and two Word Cup podiums last year, are rounding out the halfpipe team which also consists of Ursina's brother Christian, Iouri Podladtchikov and Sina Candrian.

Iouri and Hitsch are also part of the big air national squad which also features the likes of Benedikt Nadig and last year's top ranked Swiss Gian Luca Cavigelli.

The snowboard cross national team only consists of girls. Besides Meiler, Olympic Bronze medallist Olivia Nobs, Mellie Francon and Sandra Frei will once again go for the sbx podiums around the world.

And last but not least, also three experienced race boarders are accompanying Galmarini on the slopes when it comes down to head-to-head duels: Fränzi Mägert-Kohli, Roland Haldi and Simon Schoch.
