SWITZERLAND. Not only did Swann Oberson win the 5K world championship in Shanghai and qualify for the Olympics for the second time in 2011, but she also became an ambassador for the brand deLaCour at the GTE Superwatch Awards Ceremony this past December.

Swann, the first world open water swimming champion from Switzerland, proudly showed off the lovely timepiece from the deLaCour Promess Collection for every second counts in her quest for a medal at the Olympic Marathon Swimming 10km in London on August 9th.
