Adam Potter – Orienteer

Adam Potter has been awarded a grant to help towards the athlete funding for the British Orienteering Talent Development Squad.

I have been selected for the British Orienteering talent development squad, this is a national squad which aims to develop promising junior athletes into senior elite orienteers.

In joining the talent development squad it will help to benefit my aims for the future massively, so far I have been to the Junior world Orienteering championships in 2013 and 2014 with my best result being 48th in the sprint in 2014, I have recently returned for the Junior European Cup in Belgium where I managed to come 26th in the sprint. I believe that the talent development squad will help to give me the edge to aim higher and achieve my dream of a top 6 finish in the Junior World Championships sprint in 2015, it will do this through giving me opportunities to better both my physical and technical skills and will play a major part in my future successes.
