Our new beach volleyball athletes
Tanja Hüberli – or Hübi, as she’s known to her teammates – takes “Time is what you make of it” as serious as can be. When she’s not studying for school, she’s training. When she’s not training, she’s organizing. And when she’s not organizing, she’s hiking. Or baking. Or listening to music, dancing, cooking up a delicious Thai curry, hanging out with friends…
Phew, that’s a lot. Yes, Hübi is one young woman always on the go.
Multitasking like this takes energy and ambition, of course – and Tanja has a lot of both. Not surprisingly, one of her biggest sporting inspirations is Nicola Spirig Hug, the Olympic and European champion triathlete. Here’s what Tanja has to say about her compatriot:
“She inspires me in how she is handling so many trainings, tough competitions and having three little kids. And I also think she has a great personality.”
She’s too modest to admit it, of course, but Tanja Hüberli has become something of an inspiration herself. Her positivity is positively infectious. No matter what she encounters (except her only fear, spiders) she keeps a smile on her face, never stops believing and keeps fighting for her dreams.
The world has yet to see everything Tanja can accomplish. But it will.
