Britschgi after the EM coup “like in a trance”

Lukas Britschgi (24) ends a twelve-year Swiss dry spell in figure skating with bronze at the European Championships – even though he didn’t know for a long time whether he would even be able to take part in Finland.

Lukas Britschgi is struggling for words to describe what he is feeling. It was “overwhelming”, “fake”, “hard to believe”: He felt “like in a trance”, says the 24-year-old from Schaffhausen with a laugh. One day later, he still hasn’t really realized his EM coup. On Friday, thanks to the second best freestyle of all finalists in Espoo, Finland, he won the bronze medal at the European Figure Skating Championships.

It is the first EM podium for Switzerland in twelve years. In 2011, Sarah van Berkel (formerly Meier) won gold in Bern. Now finally another talent follows suit.
