Name and age class:

Hannah Wiseman, W10 (I'm 8)

Tell us about when/where/how you started orienteering.

I can't remember not orienteering... Mum says sometime in 2013 when I was 3 or 4

Why do you like it?

Because you get to choose which way to go and I can go into the woods by myself. I like any event where there's other kids to play with after.

Your best orienteering memory?

Setting up and helping at the Spooky Wood string course last year, and I love getting badges.

Your worst (and/or funniest?) orienteering memory?

When it starting really tipping down with hail and Eva was shadowing me and we were ages from the finish. This is worst, not funniest! 

Your favourite 'O' area ?

Culbin (where the Spooky Wood string course was)

A top O tip for others/favourite piece of kit?

At each junction use your compass to check the map to decide where to go.

In your other life... what do you like doing when you're not orienteering?

I go to school and I like Brownies and gymnastics, playing with my friends and my sister.

What's your orienteering ambition for the next year?

To get faster on white and then do a yellow course on my own.

Anything else you would like us to know?

I like dolphins, going on holiday and I've just learnt to ski!
