Personal life

Kauter's first sport was football, but a series of injuries lead him to turn to another sport. He took up fencing at age ten. His father, Christian Kauter, is a two-time Olympic medalist, and his brother, Michael Kauter, is a former Olympic fencer, both in épée.

Kauter also pursues a musical career under the artist name YuRi. He released in 2009 his first album Summer in Sibirie, followed in 2012 by Kopf über Wasser. In 2013, he co-founded "I believe in you", a crowdfunding platform for sport projects in Switzerland.
