Matthias Kyburz was nominated for The World Games Athlete of the Year 2017 award!
Swiss orienteer won all three races at The World Games 2013 in Cali, Colombia and he was one of the favourites in Wroclaw as well. He finished “only” third in the opening Sprint, but recovered quickly and won the Middle distance. He had a superb race, and his speed through the terrain contributed to him winning his fourth World Games gold. On the final race of the games – Sprint Relay – Matthias added silver to his medal collection.
