Gnesta, in Sweden was the chosen place to the beginning of a new season.
As a result of a deal between COC – Portugal and OK Klemmingen – Sweden, me (Tiago) and Andreia Silva came to spend some days training on Swedish terrains.
We came to Sweden last Monday (15.09.08) and we come back to Portugal next Thursday (25.09.08). A lot of trainings have been done by us, normal courses, long distance legs, middle distance controls, compass training, fast orienteering, night orienteering, ... The maps where are very interesting and challenging.
Yesterday, (20.09.08) took place in Mariestad (near Sodertalje) Long Distance Qualification to the Swedish Championships. We can’t get the final that will be today (21.09.08), but was a really nice experience. I was 19th in heart C but just the 10th best times get the final. Andris Jubelis, from OK Klemmingen, that run the same heart as me was 10th and get the final.
