Forster Rohner is the new sponsor of swimmer Christian Schreiber

Forster Rohner AG is the new sponsor of national team swimmer Christian Schreiber for the next two years. The 21-year-old from St.Gallen will be taking part in the Open Water World Championships in Fukuoka, Japan, in mid-July and is also aiming to make it to the 2024 Summer Olympics. 

From St.Gallen to the top of the world: this attitude is shared by Emanuel Forster, CEO of one of the world's leading embroidery manufacturers, and Christian Schreiber. Forster is delighted to be working with the talented swimmer and student of the University of St.Gallen (HSG): "Not only his roots in St.Gallen, but also his ambition and perseverance make Christian Schreiber an excellent ambassador for Forster Rohner AG. Fashion is also all about dedication and precision. In addition, we are both subject to constant change, be it through technologies or trends. Being able to deal with that brings success."

Promoting young talents from St.Gallen

Young talents from St.Gallen are also promoted internally by Forster Rohner AG. For example, the embroidery on the highly fashionable Vilebrequin swim shorts worn by the top swimmer as ambassador was designed by the young and creative minds of the Forster Rohner design team in close collaboration with the customer. "There is an incredible amount of potential in our region. For us, it's exciting internally as well as externally to work with young people from St.Gallen" says Forster.

Connection through embroidery design for swimwear

Christian Schreiber is also positive about his new sponsoring partner: “I am very happy about Forster Rohner's support. It allows me to combine my interest in fashion with my passion for sports. I came into contact with fashion at an early age and find Forster Rohner's products innovative. The fact that they create embroidery designs for the cool French swimwear brand Vilbrequin creates a fitting connection.”
