Professional sport
and landscape architecture are my passions, which give me my balance in life.

Marco Lehmann

You could almost say I was born on the basketball court. Even as a toddler, I accompanied my parents to the gym, so it's not surprising that playing with the basket has been with me since I can walk and think. For me basketball is a pure passion that I have been able to practice in two different forms at a top level for several years. On the one hand in the Swiss Basket National League A, which I can contest as part of Swiss Central Basket, on the other hand at the top of the world as an athlete from Lausanne Sport 3x3  on the FIBA 3x3 World Tour.

Marco Lehmann Childhood

I was born on October 28, 1993 in Bülach. I spent my childhood in Glattbrugg and Kloten, where I took my first steps with basketball at Opfikon Basket with the "Minis" at the age of 5.  

This was followed by the obligatory years in the junior teams up to the U18 and then in the men's 1st division team at Opfikon Basket. After completing my apprenticeship as a landscape gardener, BC Alte Kanti Aarau signed me at the age of 18 and I made my debut in the Swiss National League B. Basketball was a hobby up to that point that I was now able to make my main job. This was followed by two Swiss championship titles in Nati B. The time in Aarau shaped me decisively for my further basketball career.​

In the summer of 2015 I started my bachelor's degree in landscape architecture at what was then HSR Rapperswil and discovered during this time  my fascination for design and architecture. After a year at GC Basketball in Zurich, I moved to the National League A to Swiss Central Basket in Lucerne in 2016, where I was at the end of my first season as a Swiss  TopScorer of the league was awarded.

In the same year I was asked to represent Switzerland as a national player in the increasingly popular 3x3 basketball. I was immediately fascinated by the speed and intensity of the young, urban discipline. After a surprising qualification for the European Championships and a 9th place finish, we received a wildcard for the FIBA 3x3 World Tour Masters in Lausanne, where we reached the final and were able to get a ticket for the World Tour Finals in Beijing. We founded Team Lausanne Sport 3x3, with whom I have been playing on the World Tour around the globe for almost 5 years and compete with the best teams worldwide. 

In addition to my sporting career, I completed my Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture in summer 2018 and started a position in Bern in autumn.

In terms of sport, four more World Tour Finals with Lausanne Sport 3x3 followed on the international stage. In the national league I switched to Friborg Olympic Basket in autumn 2019, where I was allowed to make my debut in the Eurocup.

At the turn of the year 2020 I took a mental break and distanced myself from sport during the pandemic-related game interruption. In summer 2020 I decided to make Lausanne Sport 3x3 my priority and decided not to play in the Swiss National League A in the 2020/2021 season. In January 2021 I dared to come out publicly.


In the months that followed, I felt the more and more the desire to return to the Swiss national team A in addition to my assignment at Lausanne Sport 3x3, so Swiss Central Basketball signed me again as a player in October 2021.

Now my focus is on qualifying for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, which I will be pursuing intensively over the next few months in addition to classic 5x5 basketball, my creative, nature-based job and my commitment to an open and LQBTQIA + -friendly sports scene.
