The Swiss national gymnastics team loses one of its most important team supports. Oliver Hegi, the high bar European champion of 2018, is stepping down with immediate effect.

The 28-year-old from Aargau wants to concentrate fully on his physics studies and will not only miss the Olympic Games in Tokyo, which has been postponed by a year, but also the home European Championship in Basel in mid-April.

In addition to his title in Glasgow, Hegi won three other European Championship medals at European Championships: silver in 2017 on the horizontal bar and a bronze with the team in 2016 in Bern and in 2018 on the parallel bars.
