Junior World MTB Orienteering Championships: A birthday to remember

Posted on | June 26, 2009 | Category: News

Kevin Haselsberger is improving by the day. In the sprint the Austrian finished 21st, in the middle distance 4th, only 35 seconds from bronze, and now on long distance, on his 20th birthday, he won the gold medal with an impressive winning margin of over a minute. It was a birthday Kevin won’t soon forget: this was the first ever medal for him – and for Austria – in Junior World MTB Orienteering Championships.

In the women’s class, Finland took a double victory after Susanna Laurila’s and Kaisu Yli-Peltola’s good races. The bronze medallist, Michaela Maresova from Czech Republic, could not challenge the Finns: the gap between second and third place was more than four minutes.
