If you are an avid sports person, enjoy getting dirty and muddy, love a challenge, like to push your own limits, then you will be thrilled to hear about this sport event coming to Switzerland! An amazing obstacle course will be held for the first time in Switzerland — Spartan will be held in Verbier in September!

With its unique panoramic view of the Alps, its demanding terrain and a route for all levels, Verbier will play host on Sunday, September 14 2019. If you have ever watched Steve Austin's Broken Skull Challenge, Takeshi's Castle, Gladiators, Wipeout, Ninja Warrior, or any similar obstacle course, then you will be the first to know how demanding this can be. Months of training and fitness routines are needed... some of the participants are avid Spartan followers who follow the organization around the world.

Barbed wire, fire, and a myriad of obstacles will be set for the inauguration. Three groups featured this year:

  • Sprint: with 20 to 25 obstacles over more than 5 km
  • Super: with 25 obstacles over 13 km
  • Spartan Kids: with a distance between 800m and 3.2km

Spartan events consist of races for athletes of all ages and levels, from beginner to elite runner, while the Spartan Kids race offers several options for children from 4 years old.

UEFA Women’s Champions League Final Saturday 18 May

Olympic Lyonnais are ready for their final match in the UEFA Women’s Champions League, to fight for the title. It will be the eighth final for Lyon in a decade, where they’ll take on FC Barcelona as the first female Spanish team to play the decider. Both teams continue to be great motivation for all females, beginners and professionals, in the football world. Ada Hegerberg is one of the big names that will make an appearance for OL on Saturday in Budapest. The Ballon d’Or winner of 2018 is nearing 300 goals in her senior career at the young age of 23.

Nora, one of our InterSoccer girl players, was given the incredible opportunity to travel to Lyon and meet Hegerberg ahead of the final, to film a promotional video for the launch of the new UEFA Women’s Football Strategy. We asked 8-year-old Nora why she loves playing football and she told us: “because it’s a team sport that’s so much fun!”

Nora had the chance to speak to Hegerberg and play a spot of football with her, which she loved. On the road home she said she wished she could do it all over again! This opportunity filled her with confidence and Hegerberg has been a true inspiration for Nora.

Although there are more and more girls participating in football, and the past few years has seen a rise in female participants, it is important to keep pushing and show the importance of females in football and sports in general.

JoTo Tennis was inspired by Jonas Svensson, world ranking number 10 tennis player in 1989, and Tore Meinecke, world ranking number 46 tennis player in 1988. The story of JoTo Tenis is about two good tennis friends, who met on the ATP-circuit during the 1980s. They realized that once their tennis career was over, they still had a lot to offer and created a tennis club based on the values that were important to them:

  • Honesty
  • Quality
  • Respect
  • Passion

After a lot of hard work they founded the TC Chavannes-de-Bogis in 2004. In 2006, they started their successful summer camps in addition to club events and courses.
