Marco Krattiger and Florian Breer are a successful Swiss beach volleyball team that has already won several international titles. In 2020 they shocked the world by winning the "King of the Court" in Utrecht as a new duo. Their biggest successes also include winning the Continental Cup 2021 and finishing 5th at the European Championships in Jurmala 2020. Off the court, Florian is an avid cook and bon vivant. One of Marco's strengths off the court is cutting down trees with his bare hands.
According to the both, a functioning team requires trust above all. Trust in the partner, the team, but also in themselves, as well as a common goal. These common goals are best pursued on the world's most beautiful beaches, which often serve as their training locations and venues for various tournaments. "The atmosphere and the vibe in the stadium are unique," the boys rave.
Marco and Florian would like to see more media attention for beach volleyball. That would definitely give them more planning security and it would be easier for them to make a living as professionals.
The boys dream of participating in the Olympic Games 2024 in Paris.
