NEXT GENERATION: SEMYELS NAME IS HIS TACTIC ON THE SLOPES

Puns on names are rarely funny, but in Semyels case you wont’t get around it: If you look at the Facebook video of how he accelerates his Redster GSs out of each RTL-swing, you invariably say, "Wow, really snappy!" Where did he get that? Semyel Bissig trained on skis with his mother ever since his very first steps. And doesn’t intend on changing that – with a crystal-clear objective for his future career. FIS podium: check. European Cup podium: to come. World Cup will not be the last stop for Semyel who might make his career with appearances as an actor or lead singer. But what does he want to achieve? "to become Olympic champion", the Swiss says confidently whose idol is his racing team mate Marcel Hirscher. Go for it, Semyel - and remain to be so snappy between the gates.
