One of the great things about moving countries is discovering new sports to get mad about. For me, my greatest discovery since moving to Switzerland is Lutte. Or Swiss Wrestling.

It’s a very simple idea in that you want to pin your opponent’s back to the ground. But the execution is of course much more difficult and requires not only strength, but balance and skill. So excited am I about it, my wife has bought me a traditional blue ‘lutte’ shirt complete with edelweiss!

For those unfamiliar with lutte, here is a short video that will give you a better idea of why I am such a fan. Of course, being a fan of lutte means plenty of beer and wine drinking, so it really fits my lifestyle rather well.

I Love Lutte
