BMX: Claessens convincing at the end of the season
In the eighth and final race of the season in Bogotá, Colombia, BMX racer Zoe Claesense finished third, finishing fifth on the podium, and thus finishing second in the World Cup as a whole. For the Claessens, a historic season from a Swiss point of view has come to a happy ending. In June, the 21-year-old in Papendale, the Netherlands, became the first Swiss woman to ever win a World Cup BMX race, and the following day doubled last year’s European champion. She impressively confirmed this double success in July by winning the silver medal at the World Championships.
Golf: Valenzuela with an exclamation point
The Genevan Albany Valenzuela professional golfer finished 15th for the third time this season on the LPGA Tour, the award-winning circuit well in the USA, and in Irving, Texas, the 24-year-old finished 11th. Valenzuela scored rounds 69, 71, 69 and 68 (a total of 7 under par), which earned her about $28,000 in prize money in the $1.7 million tournament, which was won by Charlie Hall of England. In the Tour rankings, Valenzuela improved from 68th to 61st.
