Our Athlete of December is a mountain bike orienteer with a short but impressive career so far – and with so much more to come in the next years! Olga Vinogradova, Junior World Champion from 2010 and winner of the middle distance race at the World Cup Final Round this year, says she found MTB orienteering in 2009, and realised that this was her sport. “In orienteering there is no limit to how much you can improve”, she says, and it is clear she is aiming to improve a lot: according to her diary statistics, she is doing more than one thousand hours of various workouts extra to what she was doing two and a half years ago.

To find out how Olga found the sport and what else she does besides training, check out our Athlete of the Month!
