1 I definitively not an adept of those “geometric” navigations. Some years ago I was using some kind of mental training to develop my ability to solve those legs where the difference between different alternatives is only some meters. The basic idea was to determine which route drawn with OCAD was the shortest one. But this kind of “geometric” approach have its limits since you have to consider many more factors than only the length of the leg. For example…

4 it was probably a couple of seconds faster to run on the right side of the leg tonight, but I decided to have the opportunity to get some information on the trickiest leg of the course (26- 27) while running on the left. So, I got familiar with the representation of the indoor commercial center earlier and could maintain a better speed later on this leg. I believe that it is a crucial skill in sprint to always think forward and be “in advance”.

5 In the WOC Sprint final you won your fifth straight gold from major Championships.. How was this race from your point of view? Compared to the previous Sprints at the Championships I won, this time I didn’t do a perfect race. But I managed the key moments on the course best, which I think was a reason, why I was at the top, even if this time, I have to admit I was very lucky too, as Daniel was so so close… What was perhaps most spectacular was the way you handled the long route-choice to the 10th control. Can we get back to this leg and would you describe in detail how you orienteered there? I think it all started on the leg to the 7th control. I was rather surprised about this leg.

10 What was perhaps most spectacular was the way you handled the long route-choice to the 10th control. Can we get back to this leg and would you describe in detail how you orienteered there? I think it all started on the leg to the 7th control. I was rather surprised about this leg. It was quite easy, only one route-choice and gave you time to prepare for the long leg to the 10th. It’s quite unusual in Sprint races nowadays. So once I was at the 9th control I could run straight away. I perhaps saved time in the start of the leg. I was running all the time without stopping at all. Once out on the horse track I saw opening on the other side and could run absolutely straight. I also had the feeling that this was the best route-choice, which also always helps you as it gives you self-confidence. While running, I had the time to check the other alternatives and saw them, but I still had the feeling that they were not so good. I didn’t see too many footprints in the ground at the start of the leg on the track, so I knew not many runners took the same option.
