Bernhard Russi

Alpine Skiing


"The idea of Right To Play convinced me. Because play and sport are a school of life that makes an important contribution to the sustainable development of disadvantaged regions of the world."


Bernhard Russi is one of the best-known former Swiss ski racers. He celebrated his greatest success with a gold medal in the downhill at the Winter Olympics. Even after retiring from his professional career, the hobby golfer is still very active and, thanks to his numerous media appearances, is probably one of the most prominent personalities in Switzerland. Since 2005, Right To Play has been able to count on Bernhard Russi as an enormously valuable athlete ambassador. In addition, Russi is a member of the organization's board of directors and thus supports us twice over.
