Dedicated to becoming the best in the World

Posted on | January 1, 2014 | Category: News

Our Athlete of January, Hans Jørgen Kvåle, is an extraordinary athlete in many ways. Despite his young age he has managed both to establish his position in the top of the ski orienteering world, and lead the IOF Ski Orienteering Athletes’ Commission successfully.

“Right now, ski orienteering takes up most of my day time”, he says. “Training twice a day and some restitution takes its hours. The rest of the day is normally filled with work for my sponsors, planning and booking training camps and Athletes Commission work.”

Read more about his success story and future plans – until 2015 or even until 2022? – in Athlete of the Month.
