Lundanes’ “very good” day

Posted on | May 18, 2012 | Category: Arena

Olav Lundanes didn’t feel just as fresh in his legs as the day before, but he got a clear victory yet again.  “Yesterday I had a fantastic day. Today I had a very good day”, Lundanes smiles.

He completed the race without mistakes, but had to work hard for the speed, especially in the middle of the race when he felt very tired. In end it was easier again.  “It’s easier when you are coming close to finish. You’re getting more power”, the Norwegian says.

In the men’s class there were 33 controls and Lundanes managed to find them all without any mistakes. But even if he is doing such great races at the moment he has his main focus on what’s coming later in Switzerland this year: his main goal is the orld Championships in Lausanne in July.
