Selected for WOC-sprint

Today the last WOC selections have been done, and I have been selected to run the individual sprint, and I am reserve for the sprint relay. Therefore, my program at the WOC will be to run the sprint, and after that I am reserve for the following 3 distances: sprint relay, long and middle. The last preparations before WOC starts already on Friday, with WOC-precamp in Estonia until Thursday next week. WOC will start with sprint qualification on Friday June 30th in Tartu, Estonia.

So with this selection I am ready for my 5th WOC in the sprint distance (so fare I have run the sprint 4 times at WOC (2011, 2012, 2015, 2016), the forest relay 1 time(2012), and the sprint relay 1 time (2016)), and I am looking forward to it! I did hope to also get the chance at the sprint relay, but at least I did get the sprint, and that is what I will focus on the coming weeks.
