The best Unspunnen-Schwinget pairs became known on Thursday afternoon. Stefan Strebel from Aargau, who, as the technical director of the Swiss Wrestling Federation, is allowed to split the first round independently, decided to let Fabian Studenmann and Samuel Geiger lose at the start. The two last met in Brunei Schweinberg – and there was no winner.

When it was announced to SRF, “This trail isn’t over yet,” Stripel said. So Geiger and Studenman will have another chance to find a winner. The second great pairing will take place between Swiss central favorite Piermin Reichmuth and favorite Matthias Eichbacher in Bern.

Pairing at a glance:

  • Samuel Geiger – Fabian Studenman
  • Bermin Reichmuth – Matthias Eichbacher
  • Armon Orlik – Kylian Wenger
  • Sven Shortenberger – Michael Lederman
  • Cordin Urlik Werner Schlegel
