“Marc, now you’re a champion,” read the headline in Blick on August 9, 1992, the day after Marc Rosset’s sensational Olympic victory. When the man from Geneva looks at the framed copy of the sports page, he shows his arm – goosebumps. It shows what this title still means to him 30 years later.

Marc Rosset, what goes through your mind when you see this picture?
It gives me joy. On the one hand, it is still very present, but also far away because it is 30 years ago. I still get asked about it regularly, but it feels like a different life.
