REYL Group has renewed its partnership with Swiss Paralympic in the run-up to the 2021 Tokyo Games, continuing its collaboration and support for top-tier athletes such as Robin Cuche and Sofia Gonzalez.
REYL Group has supported Swiss Paralympic, the central organisation for Swiss disability sports, since 2019. Through this partnership, the Group supports the Swiss athletes selected to take part in future Paralympic Games, including the Tokyo Games in 2021 (24 August - 5 September). Its aim is to smooth the path for their athletic careers and personal development by helping them to prepare for the challenges of this major competition with the utmost confidence and to achieve their ambitions.
The Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting delay of the Paralympic Games, which will include more than 500 events in 22 different sports, have posed major organisational challenges in terms of securing sites and implementing new measures to stop the spread of the virus. These new conditions have also impacted athletes’ training schedules.
Robin Cuche (Alpine Skiing) and Sofia Gonzalez (Athletics), two promising Paralympic athletes receiving financial and logistical support from the Group, have proved themselves to be adaptable, courageous and resilient in continuing to prepare for their upcoming competitions.
