Dario Cologna

Cross-Country Skiing

"As an athlete, I have the opportunity to develope myself to achieve my sporting goals. Right To Play uses the positive power of play to communicate important values and social skills in order to support children in their development. That's why I support the humanitarian organisation in its work."

Born and raised in Val Mustair, Switzerland, Dario Cologna noticed at an early age that he had a passion and a talent for cross country skiing. After becoming U23 World Champion in 2007 and 2008 his career really took off and today he can look back at winning four Olympic Gold medals, four Overall World Cups, a World Champion title and four Tour de Ski wins among many individual World Cup races. Since 2009 Dario Cologna has been supporting Right To Play as athlete ambassador and is actively involved in various events and golf tournaments.
