Amy Baserga puts her hands in front of her face and can hardly believe her luck. Then she hugs her teammate Niklas Hartweg. The duo just secured third place in the single mixed relay. It’s another Swiss biathlon exploit this winter – and the best career result so far for the 22-year-old from Schwyz. The first pedestal. Brought in last January 8th on the Pokljuka in Slovenia. Afterwards, she admits with a laugh that she was “a little out of place with her shoes” before the start because of her nervousness. She would probably only really realize this success later. Maybe after this season.

Because Baserga makes it clear: The focus is now clearly on the World Cup in Oberhof (from February 6th) and its further development. The podium and the other good top 15 results would make them “very happy”, but they are also there to be confirmed again straight away. The double junior world champion of 2021 says: «I have always been an ambitious athlete. I knew from a young age that one day I wanted to be among the best in the world.”
