Sochi 2014

We are still revelling in the news about our very own Winter Olympic Athlete.

Roland, who are producers of the Arden’s deliciously tasty range of Twists, sponsor Swiss biathlete Selina Gasparin, who won a silver medal in the Individual Biathlon at 2014 Winter Olympics.

Her best performance was 40th in the individual event so this was an outstanding result. Biathlon is a family affair for the Gasparin sisters, who made history at the World Cup in 2012 in Austria by becoming the first three siblings to take part in a relay competition together. Selina says that the Sochi Games were so memorable for her because of all the moments spent with her sisters during training; they were together 24/7. Elisa finished in 33rd place, while Aita claimed the 62nd spot in the final rankings. What an amazingly talented family!

Here our friend Marc Andre Cornu, owner of Roland, is photographed with Selina shortly after her medal ceremony.

The Gasparins have developed the sport for Swiss women and have built 2 shooting targets near their childhood home, with a few more dotted around Switzerland.

We are over the moon with this outstanding result and look forward to congratulating her in person as the Arden’s team join in the annual Roland 120km bike ride in June.
