Successful start into the army
The first 5 weeks of the sports army in Magglingen are already over, and with it the basic military training. From now on, we will not be seen in Magglingen very often, as we will be travelling to many training camps to get the most out of this time in the army. Within Switzerland, we will travel to St. Moritz, Andermatt, Arosa and Ticino, but also to the Czech Republic and Sweden for a few weeks.
The infrastructure in Magglingen is perfect, of course. For example, I could already make use of the physiotherapy to work on my weaknesses, and I was able to have a check in the medical centre to make sure that my Covid infection has not left any damage. The infection is also why the last few weeks I was not quite able to perform as well as I had hoped. In particular, I unfortunately did not make the selection for the European Championships. However, I was aware that I had a certain training deficit due to the break caused by the infection, and that this goal was very ambitious anyway.
There will be many more opportunities in the future and now I will concentrate on making as much progress as possible during these 18 weeks and, above all, to benefit from it in the long run.Tino Polsini, 23 May 2021
