Erik Barr Zeilon ( @olbarret ) is a Swedish orienteering athlete. He ranked among the top 10 Juniors in Sweden, but is about to make the jump to the senior ranks. After finishing college he decided to take his training to the next level by moving to the 'Home of Champions'. He's been training here in Iten for the past 5 months and with 1 month left to go of his trip we caught up with him to find out what he had to say about his experience.
🇰🇪
He told us that as well as getting many physiological benefits from training at altitude with some of the world's greatest runners he has also learned many valuable lessons about the sport and the mindset that it takes to be the best you can be.
🇰🇪
"The most important lesson I have learned here in Iten is that the people who run fast times are regular people with a just a love for running and hard work. There are no special genes or secrets needed just the will to do what it takes and this goes for anyone. To quote Brother Colm 'the secret is that you think there is a secret'. I guess this quote puts it pretty straight forward. My targets when I get back to Sweden is mainly in running this year. I aim for breaking 15 minutes for 5k and 70 minutes for half. I will also try my wings on the track this summer which will be a totally new experience for me. In orienteering I have high hopes in competing with the seniors at Oringen (a five-stage orienteering competition) and on my leg at the Tiomila Relay."
🇰🇪
To make the move to Iten straight after college takes a lot of guts but we've all seen it work for Jake and Zane Robertson! We wish Erik the best of luck on his return to Sweden and hope to hear of great results after a tough 6 months of training!
