“I think that the only thing these two sports have in common is wheels!”

Posted on | April 1, 2015 | Category: News

Our Athlete of the Month has been representing her country in two orienteering disciplines in World Championships: MTB and Trail Orienteering.

Hanka Dolezalova started as a mountain bike orienteer, but after a serious accident at the World Championships 2010 she was no longer able to bike or walk. Soon after she however found herself a new orienteering discipline: trail orienteering. Quite soon she became a member of the national team of Czech Republic in her new sport too. Still, Hanka says that her MTB orienteering background has not helped her too much in TrailO: “I think that the only thing these two sports have in common is wheels!”

Read more about Hanka’s history, future plans and thoughts about orienteering in Athlete of the Month!
