Test race European Championships
At the test race for the European Championships in Ticino I managed an almost perfect run and finished 8th.
This was an even bigger success, because two weeks before I made a misstep. The fast treatment in the Rennbahnclinic enabled me to make an exact diagnosis and to train accordingly.
Test race Student World Championships
The first two test races were not quite convincing. The pressure was all the higher because I wanted to go to the Student World Championships.
At the long distance I quickly found the rhythm and had a good run. Towards the end I was over the limit and got cramps... But I fought my way to the finish and the effort was rewarded: I was selected for the Student World Championship!
Student World Championships, Finland
The Student World Cup was my big goal this year. The preparations were optimal and made this 14th place possible.
Technically, I ran very precisely and it was great fun to be on the road in this difficult terrain despite the very strenuous underground.
In the autumn of 2016, we founded the team' Est. 1996' made up of orienteering runners born in 1996. We still have a great team spirit, which is very motivating and surely a part of our success. At SOLA we were able to finish in 4th place of about 1'000 teams.
Redbull Alpitude Arosa
After my knee injury I was able to celebrate my first victory before World Champion Daniel Hubmann thanks to technically well thought-out tactics. They gained points by catching as many controls as possible with a high score.
8. Nationaler OL, Rigi
On the Rigi at the National Competition I had a technically and physically excellent run. All the more so that the good feeling was rewarded with a good result.
JWOC / Engadine
The home junior World Championship (JWOC) was my highlight in my time as a junior. I had a lot of fun walking in front of home fans. A dream came true for me with a 5th place in the middle distance.
2nd and 5th place
JEC / Scotland
relay and sprint
After the JWOC, I was able to show my top shape at the Junior-CUP (JEC) again. I also ran very stable on foreign terrain like in Scotland. It was a great international end as a junior.
Sport promotional award
of the canton Baselland
After my most successful season (2016) I got the sports promotional award by the government of Baselland. It is a great honour for me to have received this award!
2nd place M20
Test race JWOC
For the international competitions you have to get selected. Thanks to stable runs I scored one of 6 places for the JWOC.
JWOC / Norway
At my first Junior World Championships in Rauland in Norway I gained a lot of new experiences. In the last race I managed a great run and together with Pädi and Joey it was enough for a diploma with the 6th place.
1st place m20
10. Nationaler OL
Also at the last national competition I was fully prepared and collected with the victory even more motivation for the winter training.
