What race are you looking forward to for 2018?

I am really excited to head back up to the Yukon for NAOC and COCs 2018. Such a magical place!

When did you start orienteering?

I think we have a photo of me as a baby playing with my Mum’s map, so on and off most of my life.

What is your best orienteering memory?

I really like the community that is involved in almost every orienteering meet I go to. Whether it is a local meet or an international competition. Orienteers are such a neat enthusiastic group of people!

What is your fabourite type of orienteering event and why? 

I think we all live for that perfect middle or long race where the map is making sense and you’re reading ahead and it feels like you’re flying.

What’s the best orienteering advice that you’ve received?

If you start to be even a little unsure where you are, slow down. Seems obvious, but I think we have all been guilty of ignoring the little voice in our head!

What are some of your 2018 goals outside of orienteering?

I am hoping to start my master’s degree in the fall.

Tori is a member of Orienteering Canada’s 2018 High Performance Program.
