The Aargau rocking colossus is a few thousand short
Räbmatter, trembling, fights for his career
Aargau Patrick Räbmatter’s career is about to come to an abrupt end. The crowd favorite is 15,000 francs short.
In the summer of 2016, Patrick Räbmatter produced a very special litter.
Patrick Räbmatter (30) is an exceptional wrestler in many ways. The two-time Confederate belongs to the rare guild that defeated the Bern kings Kilian Wenger (32) and Matyáš Sempach (36). The “Räbis” gestures after defeats in the last round are unique. Just like the last Aargauer Kantonale.
After the 55-time crown winner was tripped by Pirmin Reichmuth in the final walk, he quickly hoisted the 130-pound Zuger onto his shoulders to celebrate his vanquisher.
The one hundred and fifty kilo colossus from Uerkheim will also be impressed by the two suns that he had tattooed on his elbows in honor of his late grandfather. “When I think of my grandfather, the sun rises.
“Must be able to reduce workload to 80 percent”
But now that sun on Schwinger’s horizon is in danger of fading. Räbmatter is one of the few “villains” who, with regard to the last federal matter, have only slightly reduced their burden. That’s probably why he missed the wreath in Pratteln.
It is therefore clear to the truck driver and dispatcher “that I can only continue my sporting career until the next Federal in Mollis if I can reduce my workload to 80 percent with the support of a sponsor”.
Although the 1.87-meter-tall man enjoys enormous sympathy in Pilin’s Switzerland, he has not yet found a sponsor who pays him 15,000 francs per season.
His star trainer Tommy Herzog (he also looks after Christian Stucki and Pirmin Reichmuth) is convinced that the investment in Räbmatter would pay off. “If Patrick could focus more on the sport like other top wrestlers, a lot would be possible for him.”
Räbmatter’s hope for a happy ending is diminishing day by day.
