Daniel Schmid (bobsleigh)

Daniel Schmid ( * 1976 ) is a Swiss bob pilot. In January 2010, by winning the European Championship bronze medal he achieved his greatest success of his career. Other good results opened him the way to first-time participation in the Olympic Games in Vancouver, as third pilot behind Ivo Rüegg and Beat Hefti. There he renounced after two crashes on further participation and criticized the difficult path.

On 25 May 2010 he announced his retirement from professional sports.
