Paprika, Marius and Hugo's new friend...

Marius Robyr and Hugo Steinegger received a very special farewell gift that took them by surprise! On their appointment as new honorary members of Swiss-Ski, the two long-standing leaders of the World Cup ski races in Crans-Montana received quite a surprising living prize from the President of the Federation - as is traditional practice at wrestling festivals.

The impressive calf, bred by Paul-Albert Romailler in St-Léonard, is called Paprika. He will soon be grazing the green alpine pastures of Corbyre in the hills above Crans-Montana, where he will be right at home.
