Thoresen ready for a change

Posted on | June 2, 2013 | Category: Arena

Petter Thoresen has achieved a lot of success both as athlete and coach, but after this season it looks as though he will not be so visible at the big races. Thoresen will end his work as head coach after this season.

“This is my fifth year as head coach for Norway. Before that I had the same role for three years for France, and I have also been in national teams for 17 years”, he says. Thoresen became World Champion five times during his career and since then has been in charge of a lot of successful athletes, including Thierry Gueorgiou and Olav Lundanes. It has really been a lot of orienteering and the Norwegian is now looking forward to new challenges.

– How is your focus since the decision for a change was taken?

“I know the goal and I know what to do. It’s just the same as ever and no change”.
