There are a lot of top-level runners who are coaches for themselves in elite orienteering. One of them is great Thierry Gueorgiou. He has incredible 12 gold medals from WOC. He got victories in every WOC-discipline (Middle, Long, Sprint, Relay), he won several times Jukola/Tiomila and many other top-international competitions. One of the most respectable athlete in the modern Orienteering tells about his approach to coaching him-self.
It is 1 day left before Tiomila. Relays are the very special event in any sport and there are some regularities in Relays. My runners won twice Tiomila - in 2012 (women and men class). In this post I will keep focus mainly in women Relay.
