Athlete profile: Yannick Michiels
Athlete background info last updated 2015-07-30 12:03:45
Very fast Belgian runner focusing on Sprint - finishing 7th at the World Championships sprint in Venice, Italy in 2014. 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. Has steadily improved his results, and the ones following the international orienteering scene think it is just a matter of time before he gets his first World Cup or international championships win. Was nearly the first Belgian to ever win a World Cup race in orienteering in the spring of 2015 in Lysekil, Sweden - but the race was later cancelled due to problems with the time keeping system.
