EFG statement of 30 April 2017
“We are deeply saddened about the news of Ueli Steck’s fatal accident in the Himalayas. Ueli Steck was an exceptional athlete and an exceptional person, who was always aware of the dangers he exposed himself to. With his enormous skills, willpower and ambitious goals, he was an inspiration for all those who knew him. His death is a tragedy, and our thoughts are with his family and friends.”
EFG congratulates the Olympic champions of the Swiss lightweight rowing four. On 11 August 2016, the Swiss lightweight rowing four sponsored by EFG were crowned Olympic champions in Rio.
EFG has sponsored the Swiss lightweight project since 2011. This partnership has allowed the four athletes – Mario Gyr, Simon Niepmann, Simon Schürch and Lucas Tramèr – to focus on their elite sporting ambitions. We were inspired by the team’s enthusiasm and determination, its strong competitive track record, and an appreciation of the dynamics and precision of rowing. The strong personal relationship between the athletes and their coach Ian Wright is also mirrored the relationship between EFG and our clients.
The results have been outstanding. The team is the current World and European Champions, as well as Overall World Cup Winners 2015. The team’s journey through two Olympic cycles has been central to the project. The team achieved fifth place in London 2012 and, after four more years of intensive preparation, all the hard work paid off with Olympic gold at Rio 2016. On 11 August 2016, the Swiss lightweight rowing four were crowned Olympic champions after winning the final in 6 minutes 20.51 seconds, ahead of Denmark and France.
This has been an outstanding partnership based on hard work, talent and dedication to excellence. Our congratulations go to the whole team, their coaches and the Swiss Rowing Federation for this crowning Olympic success.
