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
