“I love the feeling of running when I am in good shape. It’s a fantastic feeling!”

Nicola Spirig prepares herself for the Triathlon EM in Kitzbühel this Friday – with the big support of her family.

This Friday all is about swimming, cycling and running again for Swiss Olympic Gold Medalist Nicola Spirig – at the ETU Triathlon European Championships in Kitzbühel, Austria. In August Nicola will participate at the Athletics European Championships in Zurich. Both competitions are big challenges the Swiss triathlete is looking forward to.

“I am training constantly the whole year. The competitions are a very welcoming and exciting change and good opportunities to see where I stand and if the training is paying off.”

This year Nicola Spirig gave her marathon debut in Zurich and will show her progress in the running discipline at the Athletics EM in Zurich. Running has a special appeal to Nicola.

„Running is a passion for me. You can run everywhere, no matter what weather conditions there may be. Everything you need are good running shoes. I love the feeling of running when I am in good shape. It’s a fantastic feeling!”

Thanks to the big support of her husband Reto and her son Yannis, Nicola is able to manage her time schedule around competitive sports and motherhood at the same time. Despite her tight training schedule she sees her family every day.

“My family supports me in everything I do. They remind me that triathlon is just sports and not the most important thing in life. Having enough time for my family is very important to me and makes me very happy!More about Nicola Spirig
