A sprinter Mujinga Kambundji – the fastest Swiss woman in history and the first to break the legendary 11-second barrier for the 100m – joins the Hublot family. She holds the national records for the 60m, 200m and 4 x 100m and won the bronze medal at the 2019 World Championships in the 200 metres event. After a nine-month break due to an injury, she is still improving her own records and times.
Time and measuring time is a big part of my everyday life, I am always challenging my times, so I am very happy to join the Hublot family and its ambassadors who all share this desire to be first, unique and different. When I undertake something, it is to succeed and to do better than the previous time; I’m always thinking about the next goal, improving myself, surpassing myself, whilst keeping the passion I have for racing. I would, of course, love to get a place in the final of the 100m and 200m or the relay at the Games. I am focusing on what I can control and influence: my fitness and my training sessions. I like to test my limits, on the track everything is a question of hundredths of seconds, a time that I’m now going to challenge with a Classic Fusion on my wrist! – Mujinga Kambundji
Nicknamed the “Queen of Swiss Sprint”, the athlete is preparing to fly off to Tokyo, following a fast start to the season, having just won the 100m gold at the Swiss Athletics Championships in Langenthal and taken 3rd place in the 200m at the Diamond League meeting in Florence. These successes will serve as benchmarks and preparation for her third Olympic Games after London in 2012 and Rio in 2016.
Mujinga Kambundji has chosen the Classic Fusion Titanium 33mm, a model with three hands – hours, minutes, seconds – and a date with optimal readability. The watch is made in titanium, a light and resistant metal, an ideal partner for her performances. A black dial and black rubber strap make it simple yet elegant.
