Ilaria Marina Käslin (or Kaeslin) (born December 8, 1997) is a Swiss artistic gymnast.[1] She competed at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships from 2013 to 2015.

Junior career[edit]

2012[edit]

Ilaria Käslin began her international career at the 2012 Junior European Championships. She competed in the team final with the Swiss team, contributing scores towards their 13th-place finish,[2] and qualified individually 15th into the all-around final.[3] On finals day, she posted 12.833 on vault, 11.266 on bars, 13.333 on beam and 12.966 on floor to finish eighteenth.[4]

Senior career[edit]

2013[edit]

Käslin made her senior debut at the 2013 European Championships in Moscow, Russia, qualifying 18th into the all-around with a 51.499 and improving her final score to 53.632 to finish thirteenth overall.[5] In early fall, she was named to the Swiss team for the 2013 World Championships in Antwerp. In qualifications, Käslin competed in the third subdivision and qualified to the all-around in twenty-fourth place, where she finished twenty-second with an overall score of 51.566.[6]

At the end of October, she competed at the Arthur Gander Memorial in Morges, Switzerland, where she performed on vault, bars and beam to finish ninth overall;[7] then headed straight to Zurich for the Swiss Cup, where she teamed up with Olivier Hegi to finish eighth.[8]

She was named to the Swiss team for the Stuttgart World Cup at the end of November, contributing scores on all four pieces towards their fourth-place finish.[9]

2014[edit]

Käslin performed at the World Challenge Cup in Osijek, Croatia in April, finishing 8th on bars and 6th on beam after falling.[10] In May she competed at the European Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria, contributing a 13.200 on bars, a 14.100 on beam (by far the team's best beam score) and a 13.100 on floor towards the Swiss team's eighth-place finish.[11]

In August she competed at the Swiss Championships, winning gold on beam, bronze on floor, and placing fourth all-around.[12] In September, the Swiss team competed at a friendly meet against Germany and Romania, where Käslin contributed a 13.300 on bars and a 13.850 on beam. The Couch Gymnast commented, "She might be lacking a bit in difficulty but she makes up and then more with her toe point and fluidity."[13] She competed as part of the Swiss team at the World Championships in Nanning, China, where she qualified in 84th place, missing the all-around final.

Käslin then competed at the Arthur Gander Memorial in Chiasso in October, finishing in 6th place,[14] and at the Swiss Cup a few days later where she teamed up with Pascal Bucher but failed to make team finals.[15] Two weeks later she travelled to Barcelona for the Joaquim Blume Memorial, where she placed sixth all-around with a total score of 52.200.[16]

Later in November, Käslin competed at the Stuttgart World Cup where she helped her team to the bronze medal.

2015[edit]

In February she competed at the Austrian Open, helping her team to the silver medal and placing fifth individually.[17] At the World Challenge Cup in Doha in March, she placed seventh on bars and won the bronze medal in the floor final with a score of 13.750.[18]

At the European Championships in April, her qualifying score put her in 31st place but she failed to advance to the all-around final as her teammates Giulia Steingruber and Jessica Diacci had qualified ahead of her.[19] In May she performed at the World Challenge Cup in Varna, Bulgaria, where she won bronze on beam and gold on floor.[20]

Käslin competed at the World Championships in Glasgow, where she posted an all-around score of 53.456 towards the Swiss team's 16th-place finish, ensuring them a spot at the Olympic test event in April 2016. Individually Ilaria finished 46th all-around in qualification.[21]

Directly after the World Championships, Käslin headed to the Arthur Gander Memorial where she placed 5th,[22] then went straight to compete at the Swiss Cup where she and Pablo Braegger teamed up to finish 4th.[23]
