Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Wednesday, June 28, 2006
Holmberg interviewA quick and rough translation of a part of a newspaper interview with Sweden's Anders Holmberg:
"A lot of my success this year is because of my running. But it isn't enough to just have fast legs, you've also go to think fast, stay cool, and make the right judgments if you're going to be able to use your running strength."
What do you hope to accomplish if you make the WOC team?
"If that happens, I won't look at the results but I'll think about how well I completed my race technically."
"What is separating me from the top is experience. But with continued training and experience I think I've got the potential to really improve as an orienteer."
What is the long term goal -- best in the world?
"Yes, why not? I like to set high goals."
If you can read Swedish, the original article is here, where you'll also see a picture of Holmberg and learn that he's 22 years old.
Sweet terrain at JWOC
With the JWOC starting in just a few days, I decided to take a look at the JWOC home page and came across some map bits - Sweet terrain!
