About Us

The original “Merlympics” was created by Normeth Preglo Parzhuber, Director of the IMSIA (International Mermaid Swimming Instructors Association). This competition, for mermaids and mermen has started in Germany in 2015.

 As a team, we all have one thing in common : our passion in mermaiding and our motivation to make a competition accessible to young and adult athletes, from Switzerland and also internationally

Our goal is to held the competition every year and to continue promoting the special art and sport of Mermaiding in the country.  Futhermore,  to enable mermaids and mermen to get together, make friends, compete, work as teams and create "mer-memories" that will last forever.
