Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Thursday, May 01, 2008
Short quote from Ingunn Weltzien on sprint orienteeringIngunn Weltzien finished 2nd in the Swedish sprint champs. Here are a couple of roughly translated quotes from Kondis' report of the race:
"...I started easier than in my previous sprint races and I spiked the first control. I had good "flyt" and was able to stay concentrated through the whole course. On the course I lost around 5 seconds on one control, and I've got to be very satisfied," says Weltzien.
"...I'm trying out different tactics...My goal is to prepare myself in every sprint race. I'm not thinking about a place in the WOC, but I'm focusing on the perfect sprint race," says Weltzien, who is more self confident than ever.
I saw a video report and it seems as if the course was fast and the orienteering simple. The results were tight. In M21, 1st place to 32nd (last) place was less than 2 minutes.
I can't quite figure out what I think about sprint orienteering. I guess it is fun. But, it still just doesn't seem right.
