October 1976 in Neudorf, Switzerland) is a retired Swiss 800 metres
runner who ran for Adidas. He is best known for winning the gold
medal at the 2001 World Championships in Edmonton in his event.
Bucher also won the indoor bronze that same year. Bucher won two
European Championship silver medals in 1998, 2002 and also silver
at the 2002 Indoor. Other achievements include finishing third at
the 2003 IAAF World Athletics Final. At the 2000 Summer Olympics in
Sydney a medal was possibly chiselled out of him when he was barged
by his competitor Andrea Longo. While Bucher finished the race in
fifth place, Longo was later disqualified. On 17 August 2001,
Bucher posted a personal best of 1:42.55 minutes in the 800 meters.
That time currently ranks him as the 9th fastest athlete in
history. On that race, he beat the young Yuriy Borzakovskiy by a
decent margin. The week after, Borzakovskiy would post the time
that currently makes him 8th fastest in history. Bucher retired in
May 2007 due to a long-term heel injury. Viktor Rothlin (born
October 14, 1974 in Kerns, Obwalden) is a Swiss long-distance
runner who specializes in the marathon. He won the silver medal at
the 2006 European Championships in Goteborg Sweden, the bronze
medal at the 2007 World Championships in Osaka Japan, and the gold
medal at the 2010 European Championships in Barcelona Spain. He
also competed in the marathon at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney
Australia (finishing 36th), at the 2004 Olympics in Athens (where
he did not finish), and at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing China
(where he placed 6th in a time of 2:10:35). He has set four Swiss
national records at the marathon distance: In September 2001 at the
Berlin Marathon, his time of 2:10:54 eclipsed the previous Swiss
national record of 2:11:10 (set by Daniel Boltz in 1991). In April
2004, in his victory at the Zurich Marathon, Rothlin lowered the
national record to 2:09:56. In April 2007, he lowered the national
record again, when he w
