Andrea Svensson going for the top

Posted on | July 6, 2015 | Category: Arena

Andrea Svensson feels familiar with the unknown terrain, and her goal is very clear ahead of the first forest Final at JWOC. “I got bronze in the Middle Distance last year. I hope to achieve a medal again”, she says.

Since last year’s Championships in Bulgaria she has raised her level quite a lot. “Earlier I have been best on the Long Distance. Now I have become better on the middle”.

Even though she is from Sweden, the neighbour country to Norway, there are differences in the terrain, but not huge differences. “It’s much more hilly than I am used to, but how to do the orienteering and navigation is the same as in Sweden”. She is from Norrköping in the eastern part of central Sweden.

In the Middle Qualification she was second in one of the heats. In the Sprint she was 42nd.
