Nathalie von Siebenthal end her sporting career

The cross-country skier, Nathalie von Siebenthal from Lauenen, has announced a break from top-class sports following her last season. On Tuesday, the U23 2015 World Champion announced the end of her sporting career.

The news that Nathalie von Siebenthal is definitely turning away from elite sports didn’t come as a surprise. At the end of last season, the young woman from Lauenen confessed she was having motivation issues and felt physically and mentally drained, according to a press statement.

This has led to her decision to take a break from training and competition. This autumn, she then felt like she wanted to train again. "However, after only a few days, she was overcome by physical and mental issues. “Now I’m sure that I’m making the right decision to resign from top-class sport," said the 26-year-old in relation to Swiss-Ski.
