Another O-star among Sweden's coaches

The main Swedish coach, the star from the past Marita Skogum, gets another helping hand : the World Cup '92 winner Joakim Ingelsson joins the Swedish coaching team.
One of the best Swedish orienteers, Emil Wingstedt, is also one of the coaches in the team.

Ingelsson will get the responsibility for the Swedish national team's development group. He helped the team a bit during WOC in Hungary and a couple of training camps, and knows the runners well.

"It will be interesting. The goal is to create possibilities for the runners, so they can make good results" - Joakim Ingelsson says.

The 47 years old coach showed this summer that he is still fit enough by qualifying to the finals of the Swedish sprint championship in Strömstad.

Emil Wingstedt, who plans to retire after WOC in Trondheim next year, is going down from 50 to 25 percent work for the Swedish federation. He will concentrate on personal advising for the national team members. During the activities of the Swedish team, Wingstedt won't have any responsibility, so he can concentrate on his own training and performances.
