Hockey
We went to Shoot out with the Olympic champion. (Canada)
We beat the World champion (Czech Republic)
A Swiss team beat the Stanley Cup Champion (ZSC Lions beat Chicago Black Hawks for the Victoria Cup)

Soccer
Our juniors became Junior world Champions
If Spaniards win it on Sunday, we will be the only team having beaten them !!!

Seriously! can't we behave normaly ?? and loose against those teams and qualify for the semifinals ?? Please ?
Switzerland is very mediocre at both sports and judging by the last line you wrote, you are very content with that.

Be happy that they beat the Czech's and Canadian's, because it's not something they should expect very often. Both countries are head and shoulders above the Swiss and many countries are starting to gain ground on them. You guys have a good young generation coming up though (Niedereitter, Sbisa, Josi) so hopefully that will translate to a few more wins.
