Athlete profile: Peter Öberg
Athlete background info last updated July 2012
Very strong middle distance runner with excellent technique - and also a good sprinter. Especially good in Nordic terrain, where he dominated the orienteering scene for long periods. A runner who has shown that he manages to peak his performance when it really counts. Took the silver medal at the World Champs 2010 in Trondheim behind Carl Waaler Kaas. At the World Champs in France the year after Öberg was not among the big favourites after struggling with injuries - and because of the non-Nordic terrain.
