10 times Swiss stars gave us #goals

Because they rock

So since the Swatch Major Gstaad is only a week away, we thought it’s the right time to pay homage to some of beach volleyball’s favorite stars who just happen to hail from Switzerland! Here are 10 examples of times our Swiss stars slayed and succeeded in being so dayum awesome.

 

1. That time when Tanja Hüberli played the Alphorn in preparation for the #GstaadMajor just because...  

 

Preparation has officially started for some action in the mountains at the #gstaadmajor @beachmajorseries😎😂😂😂 (..only the sound of a ringing cowbell is still missing🙄😏) * * * * #switzerland #alps #swiss #swissalps #mountains #gstaad #beachmajorseries #alphorn #nature #beautiful #preparation

2. Or that time when Nina Bertschart was all of us during the off-season – binge-watching series, trying to do some good for our bodies. #WorkoutInspo

 

you know it's off season when you are able to watch game of thrones while "working out" 😍

3. That time when Hüberli/Bertschart took home bronze and proceeded to take the most adorbs podium pic EVER!

4. What about that time when Beeler/Krattiger turned an ordinary #GymSelfie into a hair contest – we still don’t know who won…

 

Wer in Rio im Kraftraum nicht Patschnass ist, hat defintiv was falsch gemacht🤣💦 So haben wir eine kleine Frisurchallenge gestartet. Wer hat euch mehr überzeugt? Marco's 'Mittelscheitel' oder Nico's 'ach keine Ahnung was das sein soll'😂 😉😄 📸 & acai sponsered by #coachsuper #fun #gym #brasil #brainfreeze #riodejaneiro #sweating #beachvolleyball #sweatgamestrong

5. Or… Literally. Every. Time. They score a point…. Because their celebrations are infectious. It makes me feel like I won.

6. What about that time when old teammates reunited for an epic selfie that Ellen Degeneres would be proud of. We just love all that’s going on in this pic…

7. Or that time Heidrich/Vergé-Dépré made it to the bronze medal match on home sand at the #GstaadMajor last year. It was just what every fan wanted

8. Don’t forget that time when Mirco Gerson took one of the most iconic beach volleyball pics ever… talk about being caught in the moment! P.S. He makes it look easy.

9. Or what about when Adrian and Joana were the epitome of #FamilyGoals, posting a cute “Main Draw Selfie” last year… again… #Feels

10. And finally, that awesome display of countrymanship witnessed last year… (Side note: we are just suckers for group pics with our faves)

We are so excited for the Swatch Major Gstaad, we’ve gone a little Swiss crazy… but that’s totally understandable when you’ve got an awesome event coming up. Can next week come already?
