World Cup winner featured for the second time in Athlete of the Month

Posted on | September 1, 2014 | Category: News

For the first time, we return to ask questions from an athlete that has already been featured as IOF Athlete of the Month!

We are doing this for a good reason: in April 2011 Emily Benham (GBR) was a promising young athlete who had started her MTB orienteering career a few years earlier. Now, she is the overall World Cup winner, and one of the biggest names in MTB orienteering. Also, her name is the one that keeps coming up when we ask for suggestions for Athlete of the Month. So, please read here what has changed since 2011 – it is a lot! – and what Emily thinks about the MTB orienteering world now.
