EU Switzerland alumnus, Yannick Guerdat, recently named by Bilan Magazine as one of the top 300 most influential businesspeople in Switzerland for his thriving online company, Artionet, is not the only member of his family to have made a reputable name for himself. On Wednesday, August 8, 2012, Yannick’s brother Steve Guerdat won a gold medal for his impressive equestrian skills in the individual show jumping event.
Riding an 11-year-old bay gelding named Nino des Buissonnets, Steve Guerdat was the only rider to achieve a double clear. It was this feat that helped Steve claim individual show jumping gold at the London Olympics in a competition that saw him edge out favorites from both Great Britain and the Netherlands.
EU extends its heartfelt congratulations to Steve and wishes this deserving champion further success in all his equestrian and personal pursuits.
