Occassional thoughts about orienteering

orienteering streakI read a story in the paper today about a guy who has a skiing streak of over 1000 consecutive days. Keeping the streak alive involves flying back and forth from North America to South America so he can ski year round.
What is the record for consecutive days of orienteering racing and training?
My own streak isn't impressive. I'm sure I've done 8 consecutive days (and I suspect I might have a 10 day streak, but I'm not certain). My 8 day streak was from 1984 when I ran a 3-day competition in Denmark followed immediately by the Swedish 5-days.
I wonder about the all time longest O' streak. I can imagine someone, maybe Jorgen Martensson, running a good 20-30 days of orienteering in a row. posted by Michael | 8:15 PM
Man, I wish I was a junior again. Look at him, he cant even stand still after the race when you are trying to interview him :-)Post a Comment
