In brief: Anna Haataja, Silver Medallist JWOC 2015 Long Distance (FIN)

Anna Haataja born 20 January 1996, lives in Oulu and is a club member of SK Pohjantähti and won the silver medal at JWOC 2015 in the long distance which was her greatest success so far.

Are you happy with your winter training so far?
Yes I am, since my two longer training camps went very well and I haven't been sick for a long time.

What do you prefer: winning a gold medal once or the bronze medal twice at JWOC 2016?
Gold once as nothing compares to the feeling of being a winner.

What do you know about Switzerland?
The Alps, chocolate, clocks

What does Simone Niggli, the Director of the Organising committee, mean to you personally?
I think every orienteer knows of her. I would wish to race against her one day in a “woman to woman”/type event.

In five years I’m …
… an elite o-runner struggling with my studies.
