European Ski Orienteering Championships: Staffan Tunis, surprised by his success

Posted on | February 6, 2011 | Category: News

Staffan Tunis has won a medal in every individual race in these championships in Norway. He is a bit surprised by how well he has done.

Because the World Ski Orienteering Championships is so late in the season – the end of March – the Finn has not competed much this season. The plan is to have lots of orienteering energy when the biggest highlight of the winter starts in Sweden. Yet a gold medal and two silvers is the outcome from long, sprint and middle for Staffan. “I have come into form very quickly”, Staffan tells. – But my plan is to be at my best level at the World Championships.

On the way to the second last control Staffan was ahead of Erik Rost. They took different route choices and coming to the finish line it was the Swedish supporters who were cheering loudest in the stadium.

“Great to win an individual gold again”, Erik says. He won the long distance, also with mass start, at the European Championships three years ago.
