Train Hard, Win Easy

A follow-up video to Go Hard or Go Home, again featuring the Swiss orienteers, Daniel and Martin Hubmann.

Set in Switzerland in the hills around Kreuzegg, it shows off again the grace and athleticism that top orienteers such as these can achieve.

Beautiful countryside is also always part and parcel of Middle and Long-Distance races. Indeed a lovely aspect of this video is its conveying of the sensory joys of orienteering down to the crunch of autumn leaves under foot. Brilliant.
