Vendula Klechova aims to do better than before

Posted on | May 16, 2012 | Category: Arena

For less than one year ago became Vendula Klechova mother – now is she heading for better results than ever at the European Orienteering Championhips.

Hanna was born on 25 May 2011. Now she is present when her mother is running in the forests in Dalarna. On the long qualification Vendula took a good eight place in her heat and is safe to the final. On the middle distance she just got to the final with a 17th place. The 17 best from each group go to the final.

“I ran well on the long qualification and it’s fun to take part”, Vendula says.

“I started up with training again in November. My goal is to do well and be better than ever before at the World Championships”, she continues. Before this year her best results are an eight place as the best individual from EOC and a 17th place as best from WOC.

The Czech has for some years now been living in Halden in Norway and a short time ago she won Tiomila with her club. The same did husband Mats Haldin.  “My next goal is Jukola”, says Haldin, who for years was among the best in world. “Now I am training four – five times a week only. It’s much less than half of what I did before”, he continues.

At the European Championships he’s cheering for Vendula with Hanna.
