What is your first Orienteering memory?

What is your favourite terrain?

I like open mountain, like Mahon Falls.

What do you think is your best distance/discipline?

Middle distance.

What was your favourite event so far?

The training camp in France last summer was great, the terrain was good and the weather was too!

I went to the JHI in 2016 in Newcastle.

Porridge with raspberries and chocolate.

What is your favourite bit of O clothing?

My turquoise and orange hooped socks, I bought them in France last year.
