Kyburz and Shimizu – Athletes of the Day for 26 July
A new day of competition in The World Games 2017 brought two more Athletes of the Day – Mattias Kyburz of Switzerland and Japan’s Kiyou Shimizu.
Kyburz emerged victorious in the middle-distance orienteering race. Yesterday he captured bronze in the sprint. The Swiss runner has a total of four The World Games medals on his account.
The award for top female athlete of the day goes to Kiyou Shimizu of Japan – gold medallist in kata (karate).
Both winners received a watch from Tissot, one of the sponsors of The World Games 2017.
As a reminder, each evening at 19.45 The World Games honours the top athletes (male and female) in the fan zone at The World Games Plaza.
