Simone Niggli-Luder


"Children love to move and play. Sport and play are therefore suitable and important means of communicating important values and messages."

The former Swiss orienteer Simone Niggli-Luder is regarded as the most successful orienteer of all time. Her fast legs together with her pronounced sense of direction led her to 23 gold medals at world championships. After countless other successes, she ended her career in 2013. The mother of three has been a proud athlete ambassador for Right To Play since 2006. With her energetic support she has been helping us for many years to give disadvantaged children a better future through play and sport and is full of energy at numerous occasions and events.
