At the Junior World Championships (JWOC) Ida Bobach won four medals. In the middle distance here she beat all the seniors except for one.

“How big is the silver here compared to the JWOC medals?”

“Maybe a bit bigger”, the Dane smiles.

The JWOC in Poland has been her main focus this year. She has focussed far less on the World Championships here in France, but of course she already has some experience at this level: last year she took part at the World Championships in Trondheim. “And I was at a training camp here last autumn and then one in July”, she tells.

Her preparations have been very small compared to a lot of other runners. She was therefore very careful. “I stopped several times so as to have full control over where I was, she says.
