Athlete profile: Helena Jansson
Athlete background info last updated 2015-07-31 14:16:34
Big Swedish orienteering star who is popular and well-known also among non-orienteers due to her great results and fantastic attitude. WOC gold medals from 2009 on the sprint and 2011 on the middle. An example of her strong mental abilities is the spring season of 2015: She struggled with injuries all spring and could only run a maximum of 40 minutes every second day - still she won nearly every competition she run, even with all the world elite on the start line.
