Great excitement in the Swiss Skiszene because of Lara gut-Behrami . The 28-year-old Tessinerin expressed to this newspaper open to criticism of the Association of Swiss-Ski. Specifically, you will feel treated unfairly, if you will be blamed for it alone, such as individual training, while team mates could such afford to be without criticism.
"There are no huge stories, if Michelle Gisin dabeihat her sister Dominique. Or, if Wendy trained Holdener Slalom and two coaches to go. Since no one speaks of special treatment," said Well-Behrami. As a "friendly fire" against Gisin or Holdener she wouldn't have understood, at least she added: "I understand your needs to 100 percent, each athlete is doing what she needs to be better. But that's the way it is with me. Maybe I called for it, only louder, because I had known earlier what I need."
criticism of Lara's Well-Behrami against Swiss-Ski, there are always. In this respect, the Christmas dinner of the workforce has not been marred on Wednesday night in Muri bei Bern. Alpine Director Walter Reusser showed, in a way, even understanding for the Tessinerin. "The Speed season begins, there is pressure and uncertainty. Because it makes statements that are not correct," said Reusser, who is only in the last few days in office.

However, Reusser made it clear that in the case of Swiss-Ski a lot to be done for the good of the riders: "What is the Per-capita-relates to investment, we lag behind the Austrians, hardly."
All other Nations can keep up anyway. As a Well-Behrami in 2016, won the overall world Cup, consisted of the Swiss women's team of 26 managers – today there are 36. Also, osteopaths are employed, which puts into perspective the objection of insufficient medical care. "It is not that we take advantage of athletes. We need you, you need us. It is a Give and Take," says Reusser. And: "Lara knows that the criticism is not appropriate."
A rebuke for Behrami can't get Well. In the first home race of the season in the come on next week in St. Moritz, it is likely to give, but talks between the Association leadership and the most famous (and most controversial) Swiss rider.
