Fin5/JWOC haastattelija sai jututettavaksi nuorten maajoukkuevalmentajan Antti Örnin hetkeä ennen Rastikaronkkaa, jossa hänet valittiin vuoden suunnistusvalmentajaksi.

Nuorten maajoukkue leireili Tampereella MM-kisoja silmällä pitäen. Antti kertoi, että kisat toimivat innoittajina nuorille ja ovat olleet tähtäimessä useammalla heti kisojen myöntämisestä.

Valmentaja arvelee, että maastotyyppi on haasteellinen myös suomalaisille, vaikka on suotuisakin.

Norjassa kisatuissa nuorten MM-kisoissa oli suomalaista yleisöä paljon ja kisat menivät suomalaisilta loistavasti tuloksen ollessa historian paras. Valmentajana hän toivottaa suomalaiset tervetulleeksi sankoin joukoin kannustamaan nuoriamme menestykseen ja tämä toisi ikään kuin kuudennen kenttäpelaajan joukkueen tueksi.

Kisojen lähentyessä pyrimme haastattelemaan kisoihin valmistautuvia nuoria ympäri maailman mahdollisuuksien mukaan.

Kerro keitä haluaisit haastateltavan!
