- Second decision at the World Figure Skating Championships on home soil, and second medal for Switzerland.
- After gold from Simona Aebersold, Matthias Kyburz won silver in the long distance.
- The victory goes to the Norwegian Kasper Harlem Voser.
Again, it turned out to be an exciting duel, but in contrast to the early afternoon, when Simona Ebersold managed to defeat the matchmaker Alexandersson, a few hours later, the Swiss was at a disadvantage. However, it was an interesting era for Matthias Kiborz. Orient won the long-distance silver medal at the World Championships on home soil in Flemish Lax.
For Kyburz it is the second world championship silver medalist at this distance. Norway’s Casper Harlem Voser won the gold medal, 51 seconds behind. The bronze went to Olli Ojanaho of Finland, who lost four and a half minutes to the winner.
Kippurs and Voser had a close race. Aargau lost a lot of time, especially in the second section, and was a minute behind its Norwegian opponent at times. After that he was able to improve again, but in the end Fosser was faster and successfully defended his title.
Kyburz is already a six-time world champion. Four times he was victorious in individual competitions, but not over a long distance. In 2021, he was also runner-up behind Voser in title fights in the Czech Republic.
The second-best Swiss finisher was Daniel Hubmann in sixth, just ahead of Joey Hadorn. The 40-year-old, who was last long-distance world champion in 2009, missed the podium by 53 seconds.
