Young Swiss Professionals Shine at WorldSkills

by swisschambei in Bilateral Relations

Switzerland has won 16 medals, including five gold, at the WorldSkills competition – a kind of Olympics for trade skills – in Kazan in western Russia. The Swiss team, known as SwissSkills, captured five gold, five silver and six bronze medals at the event, which wrapped up on Tuesday night in the Kazan Arena. The five gold medals went to the following participants: restaurant service specialist Martina Wick (who had to highest score of all Swiss; see video below), baker/confectioner Sonja Durrer, wall and floor tiler Renato Meier, electrician Florian Baumgartner and the landscape gardening team of Mario Enz and Fabian Hodel. The full result list with trainer names can be found here. Only China and Korea earned more medals than SwissSkills, the top European team. The team’s aim had been to come in among the top three nations, following on from its best ever performance at the last WorldSkills competition in Abu Dhabi in 2017.
