Daniel Stansfield – Orienteer

Dan Stansfield was awarded a grant for his trip to the Junior European Cup.

This is a competitive international event for which I am one of six M18s in Britain selected. I will gain valuable experience in racing at a top end elite level. It will also allow me to compete with the best juniors around and try to achieve an international podium. I will come away from these races with more experience and a better understanding of elite competition.
My main achievement to date is placing second at the Scottish Six Days (international orienteering event) which allowed me to be selected for the M16 British team to compete at the European Youth Championships in October 2013. Here I achieved 17th in the long distance and ran for the British team which placed 6th in the relay race. I aim to target the Junior World Championships next year as a stepping stone onto the more elite senior levels.

Florence Haines – Orienteer

Florence Haines was awarded a grant towards her trip to the Junior European Cup.

I am really pleased and relieved with my selection because I have been injured since Jan 2013 including having to have surgery. I have worked really hard to get back to GB level and want to aim for the Junior European Cup podium.
I will gain a lot of international experience traveling, being part or the team and racing in Belgium. This will help me as I want to bridge the junior/senior divide next year smoothly and hopefully remain injury free and get selected for a senior World Cup race. That is my goal for the future as well as winning the British Uni title for Edinburgh uni.
My main achievements to date are:
British junior champion 2011
European youth 4th place
World junior champs 21st 2012
