He accomplished this feat by earning the silver medal in the middle distance at the World Championships in Miskolc, Hungary on 19 August 2009. He followed this up a day later by winning the bronze medal in the sprint distance.
He won the long distance at the 2008 World Orienteering Championships in Olomouc (before Anders Nordberg), and finished second in the sprint event after Andrey Khramov. He received a bronze medal in the relay event with the Swiss team, together with Baptiste Rollier and Matthias Merz.
He also had success in the European Orienteering Championships, receiving three silver medals.
Hubmann received a silver medal at the Sprint World Orienteering Championships in 2005, and again in 2006, and a bronze medal in the relay event in 2005 as member of the Swiss Relay team. He became Junior World Champion in 2002 in Alicante, both in the long distance and with the Swiss relay team.
