About us...


Twins from Ecublens, born on July 9th, 1992, we are practising triathlon and endurance sport since our very young age with the family. After some years on soccer, water-polo, athletics, and other activities, we take part in the very first triahtlon in Preverenges in 1999. Since 2004, triathlon is our dominant sport, and we count many different selections in regional and national teams. On short distance triathlon, our results portfolio includes one European championship participation, multiple national titles, and several continental cups or other professional competitions. In 2017, we shift our focus on long distance successfully with a sub-9 at our first ironman in Frankfurt and a Kona qualification for Daniel. Since 2018, we continue our progress on the full distance with a professional license, several other sub-9 and top-15 in the PRO category.
