Jan Käslin is a cousin of Marco Odermatt. The 26-year-old civil engineer and the Olympic champion grew up like brothers. “Marco’s mom and my mother are twin sisters. That’s why my brother, who is two years younger, and I spent a lot of time with Marco during our childhood.” Because the Käslin boys were also talented ski racers, they spent a large part of their free time in training camps.

Jan has a very special memory of a glacier camp in the Austrian Kaunertal. «In the evening I dueled with Marco at the table tennis box. The loser should buy a round of coke in the mountain restaurant the next day. Because the exchange of blows at the soccer box lasted much longer than planned, we arrived at the room too late. The trainer therefore gave us 100 push-ups as punishment. »
