Enthusiasm, willpower and skill - the sprinter Mujinga Kambundji is the fastest woman in Switzerland. The ambitious, professional athlete clocks up one best time after another with passion and dedication.

From record to record
Even at an early age, Mujinga Kambunji was already putting in outstanding performances on the tartan track. As a schoolgirl, her exceptional speed attracted attention and she left the rest of the field far behind early on when she competed in the Swiss Athletic Sprint. Since then, her enthusiasm for the sprint disciplines remains unbroken. Clear focus and absolute concentration on the goal - this is what drives the talented athlete to keep on improving her results. By the age of only 22, she had already won the Swiss championships nine times: four times over 200 m and five times over the 100 m sprint. She was also successful at the European Championships held in Zurich in 2014, coming fourth in the 100 m sprint. The Swiss athlete came in fifth over 200 m. Mujinga Kambundji is truly exceptionally gifted: She holds the Swiss records over 60 m, 100 m and 200 m and regularly improves her best times. She recently set new Swiss records in the 60 m semi-final and final at the 2015 European Athletics Indoor Championships in Prague, coming fifth overall.

Ambitious and close to her roots
Mujinga Kambundji is bursting with ambition and drive. She knows exactly what she wants. Alongside her time-consuming training commitments, she is also taking a tough degree course in business. She finds the ideal counterbalance on her travels and at home. The cheerful and lively athlete from Berne draws the strength and motivation she needs to forge her own path from her family, friends and fans. The charming Swiss runner with Congolese roots is well-loved for her cosmopolitan outlook and love of her home country.

Successful ambitions
There is no doubt that the fastest woman in Switzerland is exceptionally gifted with a one-of – a-kind charisma. As a confident young woman, Mujinga Kambundji expresses the motivation that drives her on with timepieces by Carl F. Bucherer: success through ambition and brilliance.
