Athlete profile: Olav Lundanes
Athlete background info last updated 2014-07-04 11:11:18
Very determined orienteer - giving 110% to get the best orienteer in the world. Achieved his big goal in the World Champs in Trondheim in 2010 over the long distance by taking a clear gold medal - and repeated the feat in 2012 in Switzerland in continental terrain. Struggled with injuries in 2013 - but back on track again in 2014. His big strength is in the forest on longer races, he nevertheless finished 4th in the forest sprint at WOC 2009, and has a World Cup victory in sprint from Holmenkollen in 2012.
