Belinda Bencic (25) loves mandalas. “I was one of the first on the WTA tour to start drawing mandalas,” says the trendsetter. “It almost feels like a child,” laughs the Olympic tennis champion as she paints small shapes with many different colors. Despite this – or precisely because of this – mandalas are one of her gifts for her sports colleague Ajla Del Ponte (26), an Olympic finalist in the 100 m. Because the drawings also help with mental preparation for the competition.

Exchange of gifts between female athletes

Both athletes put together a package (here Del Ponte and Bencic). Inside: personalized gifts from different categories. Mandala comes from the previously defined category «Me Time».

The gift packages allow a surprising insight into the daily life of two athletes who we mostly only know from the stadiums. They are gifts for personal well-being, for better concentration, for fitness or just for distraction and fun. Be true to the motto: From time to time you should do something good for yourself (and for others).

Do yourself a favor too

Sport is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. This is why Groupe Mutuel, for example, supports numerous running events throughout Switzerland. But a healthy lifestyle also includes many other aspects: taking care of body and mind, living a balanced life – and regularly doing something good for yourself. Just like the two Groupe Mutuel ambassadors do well in the video.

Belinda Bencic (25) is the Tokyo 2021 Olympic tennis champion in singles, silver medalist in doubles (with Viktorija Golubic) and has won five WTA tournaments. Ajla Del Ponte (26) was fifth at the Tokyo Olympics in the prestigious 100-meter sprint, in the meantime she held the Swiss record and in 2021 she became the European indoor champion over 60 meters. Both talented athletes support Groupe Mutuel as ambassadors from the beginning of 2022, carrying the values ​​of the comprehensive personal insurer to the outside world.

Avocado toast with a fried egg

Big topic here: nutrition. Del Ponte accepts the egg poacher. She tells us straight away: “I often tried to plant eggs.” It always ended in chaos.” The poacher is supposed to make it easy. Bencic should know, after all, she loves avocado toast with fried eggs on tour.

From the category “Motivation” in the package: a wrist warmer with the inscription “Go Ajla”. However, the discussion immediately shows that sweats of this kind are not very common among track and field athletes. On the other hand, in tennis it is true: “Otherwise your hands are constantly sweating and you can no longer hold the racket properly.” Will Ajla wear it in the future?
