Q: If you had one tip for young orienteers what would it be?
A: Use what you have around you and train with a team. When maps are available run on them, but if trainings are hard to put together, leverage your school XC and Track teams to become a great runner. Then you'll be able to get better on a map because running will be easier.
Q: How do you normally prepare for an important race?
A: Training camps in similar terrain, running in a test race to fine tune high performance navigation and lots of map reading beforehand!
