Podcast: Yannick Michiels on EOC in Italy and his favorite sprint terrain

When the European Orienteering Championships kick off in Italy on October 4th, sprint specialist Yannick Michiels (BEL) will be eager to follow up on his bronze medal from the WOC Sprint in Denmark last year with another great performance in the streets of Verona.

In this episode of the IOF Podcast, we talk to Yannick about how to prepare for sprint championships, what the bronze medal has meant for him and orienteering in Belgium and why he prefers individual sprints over knock-out races.

All three sprint races from EOC 2023 and World Cup Round 3 in Italy will be available at IOF TV
