Jonas & Jonas are ready!

Posted on | August 24, 2017 | Category: News

The two Swiss commentators Jonas Mathys and Jonas Merz will be commentating on the World Cup Round 3 in Latvia this weekend, for the first time without their anchor Katherine Bett who is the ‘speaker’ at the World MTBO Championships. Merz: “The commentating will be exciting. There were not really many possibilities since the World Championships to develop our skills further, apart from some ‘dry exercises’ at home during the World Games – I’m sure my neighbours know everything about orienteering now. The plan is that I’ll act as the main commentator and Jonas Mathys as the expert. I’m sure I will be a bit nervous, at least at the beginning. But at the same time it’s a lot of fun to talk about orienteering, so I’ll definitely enjoy it.”

IOF will Live stream all three competitions starting with the Middle Distance on Friday, continuing with the Relay on Saturday and finishing with the Sprint on Sunday. Mathys says: “For me, the highlight of the 3rd World Cup round in Latvia will definitely be the comeback of the ‘forest’ relay in the ordinary World Cup. Beside that, this World Cup round can be seen as a kind of ‘pre WOC’. With one year to go to the World Championships 2018, this is a good opportunity for the runners to get used to the terrain and hopefully build up some self-confidence.”

Follow the exciting competitions on LIVE Orienteering starting on Friday at 10:00 Local event time (UTC + 3 h).

And so to the final question: Who is who in the picture? Let’s agree that Jonas is on the left and Jonas is on the right.
