What was your first impression about the competition and the whole day? How did you do?
I liked the contest although I didn’t do very well. Riding the bikes was very enjoyable.
I mean the tasks were pretty interesting. They were quite challenging for someone who hasn’t had international experience so far. It was a great contest all in all and I worked without problems, which was a good feeling.
The orienteering running was a creative idea but I’m not really the type that runs distances at speed.
The contest could’ve been better but it could’ve been worse. I’m happy with my performance on 2 of the tasks. I think on the first exercise I could’ve done better but I mean it could’ve gone worse as well.The running was adventurous, I like orienteering stuff, it was obviously not that long.

When I started doing the tasks, I saw a problem. I thought I could solve it, but I ended up working on it for 3 hours. The second and third problems were a bit too hard for me, so I tried to do a couple of subtasks. Here, around the lake, I enjoyed cycling. We started competing to figure out who is the fastest. I took part in the orienteering too.
The second and the third problems were really hard, but I could solve the first one immediately. After the competition I got surprised how few points people got. The lake seemed smaller from the tower, but when you are actually biking around it, it looks a lot bigger.
