This year Tatiana was number 5 at World Orienteering Championships (Long). She has kindly explained her actions with key leg 10-11.
When did you make route choice? (at which moment of the race)
I made decision on the way to control 9.
Why did you make this decision? What were your thoughts?
I saw that at the straight route choice I have to run through marshes. Before the race I got analytical information that it is better to avoid running through marshes. Also there is quite fuzzy situation before the control point position at the straight route choice. Left route choice I estimated like too long.
What was your speed on the way to control 11?
I maintained my usual competitive pace during all race. Tracks were sandy and reduce possibilities to push.
