“This moment was full of joy. I have gotten the prize for all the hard & fun work I have done over the years, in the form of a perfect race at the most important day of the season.
Winning the gold medal meant a longtime dream came true, but performing at my best when it mattered the most was what makes it an orienteer's perfect day.
Around me you can see the feeling of both contenders, supporters and a part of the great team behind my performance.”
