My final race of my first world cup was the 890m sprint. The course consisted of one big hill and several corners and the top 12 times in the sprint qualifing for the semifinals. I finished 25th with a time of 2:19:5 which was only 20 seconds behind the winner, making me feel very proud of my achievements.
I felt like the Vuokatti world cup was a great success.
Its now time to train even harder for my next world cup in 12-19 January 2019 – Ostersund, Sweden.
Race 2 is the 5 km.
Race 2 of the camp was by far the best. I now knew what I had to do and now knowing the course I went out to enjoy the experience.
Finishing with a time of 18:30:4 allows me to qualify of the World Championships in Canada in February next year.
My first race and it all starts with the 7.5 km race. It was very exciting and nerve racking first race. I had no expectations, just wanted to get my first every time and race under my belt. I was extremely nervous during my first lap but then settled into the race and loved every second of it/ Finished 22nd with a time of 30.46.6.
