National Team 2017 - startup

The national team started the preparations towards season 2017 this week/weekend at "Olympiatoppen" at Sognsvann in Oslo. We talked about expectations, training camps, selections and goals and much more. Everyone also had an individual talk with the national trainer. Since there is new structure of the national team this year, and Birgitte Husebye starts up as trainer for the women, it was exciting and motivating to get to know her better.  Beside all the meetings, we also trained some nice orienteering trainings at Sognsvann and Linderudkollen, as well as some strength and alternative training at "Olympiatoppen". 

 

 

Swiss Champion in Team Orienteering

Today I could, together with Sabine Hauswirth and Sarina Jenzer, win my first swiss championship gold medal! The swiss national season was today ended with the national championships in team orienteering. In this competition form one team consists of three runners and the goal is to get one SI-card as fast as possible through the course. This year the competition was organized as a masstart which made it all even more hectic than usual. We managed the stress well, kept calm and we sticked to the plan about doing it simple. In the end we could win the competition with 4 minutes down to the next team, and we all won our first swiss championships gold medals!

 

Selected for the National Team 2017

Today the National Team Selection for 2017 was presented. The National Team has been reorganized compared to last season, and instead of having one elite team they have now decided to have a women and a mens team. I have been selected for the womens team which will be trained/coached by Birgitte Husebye. Last season we were only very few women in the training camps, and I am looking forward to be part of a bigger team this year. The first meeting with the new team will be 11th-16th of November.
