In the semi-finals of the Swiss Clubs Championship in her native city, Weyermann won two races. She raced to victory in the 800 metres with a time of 2:15.67. "That went much better than I had expected," she said after the race.

Weyermann, who clinched the bronze medal in the 1,500 metres at the European Championships, went on to win the 3,000 metres race at Saturday's competition as well. Her winning time of 9:33.33 assured her club, GG Bern, the maximum number of points possible for a second time running.

Weyermann injured her elbow at the beginning of April.
