World Cup in Finland

The first World Cup round of 2019 was held close to and in Helsinki in the beginning of June (8th-11th) with Middle Distance, Chasing start and Sprint Relay on the program. The weekend was the first warm days of the summer and we came from 15 degrees in Norway to 30degrees in Finland. The Middle Distance was therefore a tough race, but I did what I could to deal with the heat, and ran a stable technical race until the 2nd last control, which I search at least 1minute and ended on a 22nd place in the end. In the chasing the day after I felt tired and my whole race I was within a group and ended 26th. The last race was a sprint relay held in the city center of Helsinki with a great arena and lots of people. I ran leg 1 for Norway 1, and my race was good except a small mistake on the 3rd last control and I changed over in the big group behind Sweden 1. My team (Kasper Fosser, Gaute Steiwer and Ingeborg Eide) ran well and we were in the medal fight all the way, and got a strong 4th place. 

 

NM sprint and sprint relay

Time flies, but her comes some articles about the last month. End of May my club Nydalens SK organized the Norwegian Championship in sprint and sprint relay in Nydalen. Since I moved to Oslo just before Christmas I did not know the terrain and was one of a few from the club who could start. My qualification race was good with best time in mye heat, but unfortunatly I did not get one control registered in my emiTag and got disqualified (I was there and even think I saw the light flashing). Therefore, I could not start in the final, but at least I could run as a pre-runner. In the sprint relay I ran the last leg in team with Ragne Wiklund, Lars Young Vik and Jon Aukrust Osmoen. We managed a nice 5th place in the relay. 

 

Sprintliga and 15-stafetten

Tuesday I ran two races in the new Sprintliga at Ammerud in Oslo. First a normal sprint and then a rerun of the same sprint course. In the sprint I won with a small margin (6s) down to Anne Johanne Lind Nørbech, and in the rerun we switched positions and I got 2nd 8s behind Anne Johanne. This weekend I ran the club relay 15-stafetten with Nydalens SK, who had 3 full teams on the start. I ran the 4th leg, and with strong performances on all legs we won the relay.
