Thanks for the news and lovely pictures Lindsayfan . 2003 is certainly Roger's year. BTW, is that a miniature mountain attach in the trophy? I assume it suppose to be the Alps. Took me several minutes to figure what the heck it is
Usually you could just get awarded once as Swiss of the Year but they have new rules which means that the Swiss Sport Athletes of the Year get automatically nominated for Swiss of the Year.
That means that Roger was nominated for 2014 but he withdrew. He stated in an interview that he felt so proud when he got the Award in 2003 that he wanted to give other people also the chance to get this honour
