When the Swiss Sporthilfe invites for their famous SuperDecathlon, which will take place in the Zurich Hallenstadion on October 31, the national sport stars are ready to accept the challenge. This time, the field of athletes once again includes two snowboarders who are willing to battle for glory.

Olympic Gold medallist Patrizia Kummer and Olympic Silver medallist Nevin Galmarini are part of the illustrious circle of sport celebrities who have to compete in various competitions.

While it's the first time for the Galmarini, it's the second time for the best female raceboarder of the recent winters who can still remember what she experienced two years ago:

“It was a fantastic atmosphere. The games were fun and I hope for the same this time,” says Kummer.

However, the experience of one participation doesn't bring Kummer any kind of advantage. The only thing Kummer might have learned is to expect the unexpected. And this is something Galmarini also knows.

Maybe the only thing, too, as both don't have a clue how the games they have to compete in will look like as the they won't be revealed until the opening of the charity event.

Nevertheless, the evening is hosted under the motto 'around the world' and asks the athletes to make an adventurous travel from continent to continent.

Here is the list of celebrities competing:

  • Daniel Albrecht, Ski, first participation

  • Alex Baumann, Bobsled, first participation

  • Nevin Galmarini, Snowboard, first participation

  • Beat Hefti, Bobsled, second participation
