Athlete profile: Yannick Michiels
Athlete background info last updated 2017-06-28 08:33:16
Very fast Belgian runner focusing on Sprint - taking his first World Cup victory in the spring of 2017 in the sprint in Lohja, and finishing 5th at the World Championships sprint in Forres, Scotland in 2015. Probably the fastest top orienteer on the race track the last years - in 2015 he ran 5000 meter in 13:47 and 3000 meter below 8 minutes. This gives the Belgian an extra dose of self confidence as he knows he has the speed to win.
