European champs bronze

Finally, at the 4th competition in the European Championships in Tyumen, Russia I got my well desired medal. The first days I have done very good races, but it has only got a 6th and 7th place. Today’s race were again very good, and with hard orienteering and skiing from the start to the finish. I skied with full control all the way and made no mistakes.

Tomorrow we have a great team in the relay. Øyvind Watterdal starting, before me and Lars Moholdt will ski the last leg. With 3 good performances we hopefully can try to defend last years title. Follow the live TV coverage online from 10.05 (CET).

A deeper article about the European champs will be written when we get home.
