Please list your best and proudest orienteering achievements to date.
The big victory is still to come!

What is your first orienteering memory?
I was around 10 years old and our neighbour did orienteering. He used to run to work and back five days a week. It was 18 kilometers one way. From the beginning it was clear to me that orienteering is a tough sport.

What is your favourite orienteering story or experience?
There are many – the best stories have good characters who struggle in the beginning. They navigate through various challenges until the hard work starts paying off and they enjoy success and friendship.

Is there a particular map/area where you could never get sick of orienteering?
Plenty of good areas around the world – but to name one area: Southern coast of Finland in the spring time is still great.

If you could fly anywhere in the world to orienteer, where would you go, and why?
Can not wait to fly to Canada.

If you could get orienteering coaching from anyone in the world (dead or alive) who would it be, and why?
Walter/Wayne Gretzky or Jari Litmanen. Would be interested in learning from them.

What races are on your 2013 calendar?
Tiomila, Jukola, WOC, Nighthawk in August near Oslo

Aside from orienteering, what other sports do you do on a regular basis?
Xc-skiing, cycling/mtb, hopefully getting into surfing

What is your favourite pre-race breakfast/snack?
Some porridge or a banana, coffee.

Tell us something that we might not know about you…
I am left footed and right handed.
