Moving to Göteborg
This year one of my biggest dreams came true: I moved to Sweden, namely Gothenburg, for half a year to study autumn semester as an exchange student in the School of business, economics and law at the University of Gothenburg. It would be hard to explain how desired was this event, so to say that I am totally happy now is to say nothing.

Since the beginning of this year I started to run for Stockholm club IFK Lidingö SOK, situated on Stockholm island Lidingö.

My first World orienteering Cup - WC 2019 round 1 in Helsinki...

Marika Teini is one of the most skillful athletes in modern Orienteering. The reigning European champion in the Middle distance tells us about key factors influence performance in particular O-events.Id say that overall in individual competitions its 75%:20%:5% (physical capacities: navigational skills: tactics).In middle distance maybe 70/25/5 and long and sprint 80/15/5, but I think that it depends more on personal strengths than on discipline.
