Happy Days.


Jeannine Gmelin.

Photography Helio Caeiro Farias

Having a difficult day? Perhaps you have time for a cheerful story? Meet Swiss Rowing Federation’s national team single sculler Jeannine Gmelin. She is short (170cm), 27 years old, just back from injury and aglow with happiness. As far as I can tell, happiness is Gmelin’s default setting. When I ask what would make a perfect outing, she struggles to decide. “If I say flat water then I feel bad about leaving out rough water because rough water makes more demands and I like challenges. So maybe the best outing would be flat water in the beginning and then some choppy water near the end”. And a perfect gym session? “Well”, Gmelin considers the question, “I wake up pretty much every morning looking forward to training so it doesn’t matter what is on the plan. A good weight session – lifting weights especially, I can’t say the reason why, but it makes me feel good”.
