It was a unique discussion and one of the finest on how a meet of this stature is actually done. Joho manages sponsorship procurement, which is a 24/7 job in itself. Andreas handles the Swiss Kids program, which has 150,000 kids, 7-14 in 1000 cantons around Switzerland competing each and every year!

The Weltklasse ZH is a huge part of the reason why Swiss Athletics, in a well funded state, is developing finer and finer athletes. Athletes who have won European medals and titles, and soon, I believe, could be competing for medals on the global stage once again.
