World Cup Switzerland

The World Cup in Switzerland in the end of September was a positive weekend for me. I am satisfied with the results 9th, 11th and 11th in the three races (middle, knockout sprint and sprint), and my solid performances through the whole weekend. In all races I was close to the podium, which is motivating and nice after not making it to the WOC team this year. The middle distance was a classic "mittelland" terrain, and familiar to me, while the sprints were tricky and nice in the old town of Laufen and Zwingen. The Swiss again organized a very fine World Cup round with a lot of spectators and quality courses, it is alway a pleasure competing in Switzerland. 

 

 

 

Gold and silver at Norwegian Champs

The norwegian championship at Skrim and Tjøme was a successful weekend for me: for the first time I won a medal (actually two) in the forest at the national championships. The "NM-uka" (norwegian champs week) did not start as well as I had wished for. I struggled physically, and also a bit technically in the first part, and ended 7th. The middle distance qualification went better, with a stable performance and 2nd spot in my qualification heat. In the middle distance my race was solid for the biggest parts of the race (minus one control on the last loop), and this time I had the seconds on my side and won silver! In the relay my strong team with Tone Bergerud Lye (1st leg), me (2nd leg) and Anne Margrethe Hausken Nordberg, won gold! So finally, after 11 seasons of aiming for the medals at "NM-uka", I could climb twice up on the podium.

 

Selected to WCup in Switzerland and China

After the last selection races this weekend, I have been selected to run both the World Cup in Switzerland (end of September) and in China (end of October). In Switzerland the program will be: middle distance, knock-out sprint and sprint, while in China it will be: middle distance, sprint relay and sprint. The last year I have been focusing primarily on forest orienteering, and now I will switch my focus over on sprint orienteering.
