Got her big breakthrough in the European Champs in 2010 with a bronze medal at the sprint. Continued her great 2010 season with a 4th place in the overall Nordic Orienteering Tour after 5th and 4th spot in the two first races. Her speciality is sprint, but is also a very good relay runner. Winning the middle at the Nordic Champs 2007 (junior), and taking a bronze medal at the sprint at JWOC.

Signe Søes
ClubIFK Lidingö (SWE) /OK Pan Århus (DEN)
Born date08.04.1983
Info/BiographyMay be one of the big names in the women orienteering in the future - steadily improving her results and stability year by year. Reached her peak so far with a 2nd place at EOC Middle in 2010 after taking a 4th place at WOC sprint the year before. Has struggled with injuries in 2010 and 2011 - not being able to run fully until in February 2011. Comes from Sjælland originally, but has moved to Århus for her studies in biologi. Her twinbrother Rasmus is also in the Danish team, Signe is some minutes older, though... Very close to the medals in international championships for several years, improving steadily place by place with 5th place on the WOC long distance in 2008 and 4th place on the sprint in WOC 2009. Finally got her first international medal with silver medal at EOC middle 2010 in Bulgaria - a big surprise after being injured for several months not being able to do much running training. Moved to Stockholm in 2009 for her studies, and took the spring season of 2009 off the studies to focus fully on orienteering. Nominated for the Orienteering Achievement of the year 2008 after her real breakthrough in 2008 going from a top-15 runner to a Top-5 runner with 5th spot in the WOC Long Distance and second and third position in the World Cup final races as the top results.
