Speakers Corner #8 Tim Robertson

He made is WOC-debut only 16 years old

He has moved to Stockholm, Sweden and has an ambition to learn the Swedish language. That’s a big task but he is used to handling big tasks. He managed to defend the JWOC-gold in Sprint despite a very big pressure.
– I´m very proud of that performance in Rauland, Norway 2015 when I won that gold medal. Also happy to do it with my family onsite, Tim says. He was also the first ”Kiwi” to win a medal at WOC when he finished in Silver medal position in Riga 2018, only one second behind Daniel Hubmann, Switzerland.

Per Forsberg, the Event Director of OWC2021 Idre Fjäll, has invited both interesting and successful athletes for a longer conversation about their life as a top level orienteer. Every month we will publish two runners, one woman and one man.
