How long ago did you start orienteering? 12 Years

How many JWOC’s have you been to? 2008 Sweden, 2009 Italy, 2010 Denmark

What keeps you motivated to train for the sport? There is always something new in Orienteering. Its not like doing laps on the track. It is different and challenging every time you go out.

What is your favourite event? It’s really hard to pick a favorite. Every event has its charms.

Do you have a pre-race ritual? 
If so, please share. Wake up at least 3 hours before I start, breakfast of a bagel with peanut butter and banana. At least a half hour warming up before the start

What would be your best orienteering memory? I think it would have to come from the training camp before JWOC 2008 in Sweden. We went out training and dumped our stuff by a lake in the middle of the map. After a good hard training session we came back to the lake for a swim and lazed around a bit on the warm rocks while we ate lunch

What are your goals for the 2011 season? Get some top 100s at JWOC in Poland. Make the JWOC relay team (top 3 on the Canadian team). Win a race COCs in Whitehorse
