Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Wednesday, April 19, 2006
Hojsgaard on her coachNorrkpings Tidning published an article about Peter Holgersson, who coaches both Karolina A Hojsgaard and Jenny Johansson. Here are a few quick translations of some of the article.
Hojsgaard on her classic race in Japan:
I made a 9 minute boom on the first control. It was a strange feeling to have such a failure because I felt like I was in the same form as in 2004.
and on why the WOC in Japan wasn't a success:
It didn't feel right. Being away from my family for three weeks was tough. Also, I'd been sick in December and January and lost some base training.
and on her coach Peter Holgersson
...He steers my training in detail and we talk on the phone twice a day.
You are 35 years old and never really had a coach?
(Laughing), No. My husband, Thomas, has been a sounding board. The national team leader, Marita Skogum, has also helped.
Holgersson is a track coach in addition to coaching orienteers (he's also a math teacher!). If you can read Swedish, you might poke around Holgersson's web page. posted by Michael | 8:51 PM
