Speakers Corner #2 – Olav Lundanes

No short cuts for success

He is the king of long distance without any doubts. Six gold medals in that disciplin says it all. What is the secret behind all this victories?

– Hard work is the simple answer, he says.
In Speakers Corner 2 he is explaining his strategy och philosophy behind his training but also about his preparations for the big and important competitions.
Of course we are talking about the challenge to keep the motivation through the very strange and different year of 2020.

Hungry for more

She is only 22 years old but already one of the best female orienteers in the world. How is it possible? What a journey it has been för Simona Aebersold.
In Speakers Corner 1 she give some answers to her success through the years but she is very determined to achieve more in the future.
– One big goal in the upcoming years is WOC 2023 in Switzerland, she says.
She has just joined the Swiss Army which will give her a great opportunity to focus 100% on orienteering and take another step in her development.

The story about our logotype

Every winter our presenting partner Idre Fjäll is organizing several FIS World Cup events in three different ski disciplines, Ski-cross, moguls and speed-skiing. For the purpose of marketing the FIS World Cup events and Idre Fjäll itself, a logotype was created for all three events.

Now, with the Orienteering World Cup Idre Fjäll 2021 coming up, we have created the logotype for the event. The style is very much the same as the logotype for the FIS World Cup events but we use other colors and of course we have added our symbol, the flag. We have kept the big and important symbol of Idre Fjäll which is the reindeer. You, as a runner, coach or visitor, will experience reindeers during your stay at Idre Fjäll in August 2021. We can guarantee you will see at least one, more probably hundreds of them….

We have also updated our club logotype for Idrefjällens OK, which is included in the World Cup logotype. In the letter O you can see the highest peak in the area, Städjan 1131 m.a.s.l, stylized. A very characteristic peak and visible from far. Indeed, it is the mountain in picture of our front page.

We do hope you like our new logotype and looking forward to the Orienteering World Cup Idre Fjäll 2021 as much as we do.

Avlysning för World Cup-tester

Tester inför World-Cup Idre Fjäll 2021 kommer att arrangeras i samband med Idrefjällveckan 2021. Medeldistans söndag 27 juni och långdistans onsdag 30 juni. Området enligt kartan är avlysta för deltagare på World Cup-testerna.

Inget Tiomila i år – nu ser vi istället fram mot ett spännande 2021

Vi hade i Idrefjällens OK en ambition och utgångspunkt att kunna erbjuda alla besökare ett professionellt och högkvalitativt 10Mila i de svenska fjällen i höst och när inbjudan publicerades var bedömningen att det fanns möjligheter att genomföra ett ”normalt” 10Mila i Idre Fjäll.

Vår planering har sedan dess varit fokuserad och intensiv med nyritning av kartområden, banläggning, provlöpning av banor, planering av webbproduktion, tillstånd mm. Vi har tillsammans med Idre Fjäll också planerat arena, boende och matservering för arrangemanget.

Vi har samtidigt noga följt utvecklingen av COVID-19 pandemin och de restriktioner som olika myndigheter har meddelat och vi hade en förhoppning att läget beträffande pandemin skulle ha förändrats i positiv riktning. Nu gör vi dock bedömningen att utvecklingen inte går i den riktning vi hade hoppats på och vi anser därför att det inte är möjligt att genomföra arrangemanget som vi hade önskat och vi har därför idag fattat beslut att inte genomföra 10Mila 2020 Idre Fjäll.

Vi tycker det är ett väldigt tråkigt beslut men vi måste anpassa oss efter de omständigheter som nu råder och hoppas på förståelse från er alla som sett fram emot 10Mila 2020 Idre Fjäll.

Nu blickar vi istället framåt mot 2021 som vi vet kommer att bli ett väldigt spännande år med följande arrangemang:

  • Idrefjällveckan den söndag 27 juni till och med torsdag 1 juli
  • Världscup testtävlingar 27 juni (medel) och 30 juni (lång)
  • Orienteering World Cup 12 – 15 augusti med hela världseliten på plats

Glöm heller inte bort att det är som vackrast i Idre Fjäll under hösten och totalt 25 orienteringsbanor på fem kartområden finns att springa just nu och dessa finns tillgängliga tom 30 augusti samt under perioden 21 september – 15 oktober.

PM för Idrefjällveckan light
