Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Tuesday, November 25, 2003
Pick me up?Just a quick note today. From a regional O' newsletter in Smaaland, Sweden, where Mattias Karlsson and Emil Wingstedt (both on the gold medal relay team from last summer) come from:
Last summer I met P-O Bengtsson in Kristianstad and he told me about helping with transportation at a national team training camp in the north east part of Skaane. One day they went to Aarhus for training in the sand dune terrain. When Peo asked Mattias Karlsson when and where he wanted to be picked up he got a surprising answer.
"Pick me up? No, I'll run back."
That meant running about 30 kilometers.
That's the attitude of the world champ.
