Start sporting career
He took up the sport at age five in Solothurn, Switzerland. (noz-oberaargau.ch, 09 Sep 2014)
Reason for taking up the sport
He told his parents that he wanted to try gymnastics. He went to a training session and enjoyed it straight away. He likes the sport because it has variety and is challenging. "I was about five years old when I first saw gymnastics on TV. My parents told me that I was immediately enthusiastic." (noz-oberaargau.ch, 10 Apr 2019; noz-oberaargau.ch, 09 Sep 2014)

Philosophy / Motto
"I try to consider nerves before competing as something positive that gives me energy. If I fail to do that, which is not very common, I always calm down by saying that I've done it in training and that I have mastered the exercises. Positive thinking and having fun with gymnastics helps." (noz-oberaargau.ch, 10 Apr 2019)
Awards
In 2014 he was named Best Male Talent of the Oberaargau region in Switzerland. (oberaargauer.ch, 11 Dec 2014)
