Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Lundane's web page - worth a lookOlav Lundanes' web page is worth a look (even if you can't manage the Norwegian). Lundane's was born in 1987, so he's a first year senior. He's already got one WOC appearance and 9 JWOC medals.
A glance at his training page shows a lot of training and a steady increase in volume and, in particular, O' technique training.
In 2002/2003 he trained 377 hours with 52 hours of O' technique.
In 2006/2007 he'd almost doubled his training to 645 hours and nearly tripled his O' technique to 149 hours.
He's got a page about mapping where we learn that he first started fieldchecking as an 11 year old (drawing the map with "Paint"). The page shows clips of 10 maps he did some fieldwork for since 2002.
Lots of training. Lots of O' technique. Lots of mapping. Seems like a good way to become a good orienteer.

Yes, but there is no reserve to increase training hours when he is 25 years old. As junior is easy to make good results because it is enough if you train a lot.Post a Comment
I hope he will win WOC someday, he reserves it by working hard anyway.
