Ammann ties the knot

Swiss Olympic quadruple gold medallist, Simon Ammann, married his Russian girlfriend Yana Yanovskaya on Friday.

The wedding, in Pfäffikon on Lake Zurich, had been kept secret, and only close friends and family were invited.

Friday was also Ammann’s 29th birthday. His bride is 25. They met in a training camp in Finland three and a half years ago.

Ammann is the first ski jumper ever to take four individual golds – two in Vancouver earlier this year, and two in Salt Lake City in 2002.

This year he also became the first Swiss ever to win the World Cup overall ski jumping title and he ended the season by winning the skiflying world championships.
