The first WOC 2017 training camp in Estonia is over for this time. We have been training on many different maps and quite different terrains, and in the weekend we competed at Suunto Games a test-WOC for the organizers, but also for us athletes. Due to a cold I only ran the middle distance on Sunday, and got the 12th place in the good starting field after a stable technical performance. Even though I had to be careful the whole week due to my cold, I got many hours with technical trainings and a good view on the terrain types for next years World Championships. 




Today the norwegian selections for the World Cup Final in Switzerland as well as for the first World Championships 2017 training camp in Estonia were published. I am selected for both. The World Cup final is held in Aarau in Switzerland and the program is: sprint relay, long distance and sprint 14th to 16th October. The training camp in Estonia will be held 29th September to 6th October. This will be my first ever trip to Estonia and I am looking forward to experience what is waiting for us in the World Championships next year.








The norwegian championships were organized in Bodø last weekend. After one week of sickness after the world championships my physical shape was fare from good, and my results were also there after: 14th Long Distance and 23rd Middle Distance. Even though I was not able to perform good results it was a very nice weekend! Running in such beatiful terrains is just fantastic, and I enjoyed all of the four races. 







This year's world orienteering championships ended for me with an 8th position in the individual sprint race and a 5th position in the sprint relay. Ahead of the championships my goal was to be in the fight for the top 6 positions in the sprint and in the relay I wanted to deliver a technical good 1st leg and have contact with the best teams. The first goal I fulfilled, but a little bit disappointed about the last part of the finale which made me fall out of top 8. The second goal I managed until the 3rd last control, where I made a parallel mistake and therefore lost contact with the favorite teams. My feelings are therefore mixed, but going home with one diploma and a top 10 result is good, and I am satisfied with my overall stable performances on day X. (Photo: Rolf Gemperle)



The last relevant training sessions for WOC 2016 are completed after a tough training week in the Strömstad area in Sweden as well as one day in Tønsberg in Norway with the norwegian WOC-team. From 4th to 10th August we have been training many quality high intensity sessions, both in the forest and in city sprints, and I am starting too feel ready for the championships in 1.5 week. // De siste WOC-relevante treningene er unnagjort etter en god pre-camp sammen med resten av det norske VM-laget i Strömstad-området og i Tønsberg. Det ble mange kvalitetstreninger på høy intensitet, og jeg begynner å føle meg klar til å løpe VM om 1.5 ukes tid.
