Tim Robertson tells about factors of successful performance in Orienteering

Tim Robertson is the first male winner of WOC medals from a country outside of Europe. Like a strong international level O-athlete Tim has own opinion about the role of physical capacities, skills, and tactics for successful performance in Orienteering:


Sprint
Physical - 80
Skills - 20
(but depends a lot on the terrain. A very difficult sprint course needs a lot more skill)

Middle
Physical - 50
Skills - 50

Long
Physical - 60-70
Skills - 30-40

Relay
Physical - 70
Skills - 20
Tactics - 10

P.S. Skills means an orienteering technique; Tactics means the interaction with other runners and pacing during the race.
