Chapter 14- The GLORIOUS Chapter

Nino Schurter's hunt ended in Glory- Now the Olympic Champion recaps his past four years, and talks us through the secrets of his overwhelming success

(lifePR) (Givisiez, ) On August 21st 2016, N1NO Schurter completed his collection of Olympic medals by winning Gold in Rio de Janeiro, after winning the Bronze medal in Beijing in 2008, and Silver in London in 2012. The 5x UCI MTB World Champion had not only set himself the biggest goal, but also put himself under tremendous pressure to succeed in his Hunt for Glory. Now that the hunt has ended in glory, N1NO breaks down the last few years for us.

N1NO is used to winning. With 5 World Champion titles, 4 World Cup Champion titles and 21 World Cup victories in the books, he is one of the most successful Cycling athletes of all time. Looking back to 2012, at the age of 26 N1NO experienced the biggest “defeat” of his career to date, walking away from the Olympics with a Silver medal having dominated much of the race.

In the end, Czech rider Jaroslav Kulhavy took Gold in a race, which today is still considered as one of the most exciting in recent MTB history. However, this “defeat” got the ball rolling for setting new goals- a Gold Medal four years later in Rio. (...)
