"Its almost been forty-three years since I started Orienteering. When I was young, I rose to elite ranks, but spinal and knee injuries reduced me to walking. I’ve actually had a lot of injuries, but they never stop me. When one of my major tendons tore I just started doing the tracks on crutches.
Doing well in Orienteering is as much a mental game as it is a physical one. Fitness alone won’t help if you choose a bad course. That’s why we often call the sport “cunning running,” but in my case, I prefer to call it “cunning walking!”
