3rd at WRE-sprint Stockholm


Some days after tiomila Kristin and I decided to run DM-sprint Stockholm, which was also a WRE-sprint. The start line had a lot of good sprinters since it was a World Ranking Event, and I felt it was a good chance to get a quality sprint, where you got the possibility to fight against the best.

My race started in a really poor manner, I was stressed and I lost a lot on micro route choices. I am not satisfied with this part of the race. I have trained a lot in areas similar to this one, so I think I should have solved it way better. After 8 minutes of running we passed the road, and the sprint changed character. At this point I was 47 seconds behind Øystein Kvaal Østerbø who was the fastest at this point, and in 12th position in total. I was fighting really hard the second part of the sprint, and even though I felt really tired for the last eight minutes of running, it proved that I am becoming stronger. In the finish I ran into 3rd position, 59 seconds behind Kvaal who won.

This was actually my first top three at a World Ranking Event, and I am satisfied to see that my sprint training has given some fruits!
