Q: How did you first get involved in orienteering?
A: I first got involved in orienteering by doing Score-O events in my region with members of my family. Then, as I grew older, I gradually learned how to navigate, understand the map, and use the compass to finally be able to race on my own.

Q: If you had one tip for young orienteers what would it be?
A: As a beginner, it is okay to take your time. You need to make sure that you always know where you are on the map. As time will pass, you will get better and gain confidence in your skills.

Q: What would a typical week of training look like for you?
A: During spring, one of my typical weeks of training would be doing two running training, two mountain bike and one spinning training, three swimming training, and at least one weight training.

Q: How do you normally prepare for an important race?
A: For an important race, I make sure to eat, drink and sleep well for being at the top of my form and I revise previous maps to remember well the technical skills behind orienteering.

Q: What is your big life orienteering goal?
A: For a competitive goal, I would like to attend the JWOC or later to the WOC. Although, for an ongoing lifestyle, I would like to stay active in orienteering as long as I am able to.
