Posted on | July 1, 2017 | Category: News

The Sprint at Nokian Tyres World Orienteering Championships took place in Tartu, Estonia, today. Maja Alm, Denmark, took a new momentous victory, after running an excellent race. She was 37 seconds faster than the silver medallist Natalia Gemperle, Russia.

– I feel very happy and it is also a relief. I have been looking forward so much to this day although I am getting more and more nervous every year. I am very proud of this medal, as the pressure is getting bigger and bigger, says Maja Alm.
Galina Vinogradova, Russia, was third just one second after Gemperle.

In the tight men’s class, the Swiss Daniel Hubmann ran an impressive race and finished two seconds faster than Frederic Tranchand, France.
– It feels so great now, especially because I have focused a lot on sprint training ahead of these championships, says Daniel Hubmann.
Last year’s world champion Jerker Lysell, Sweden, took the bronze.
