Emily Kemp gets some recognition back home.

I had sent the article to a Finnish friend who is a member of the same club. He writes back, "Good article about Emily. She is a Canadian gift for Finnish orienteering. It is a pleasure to keep her on our team."

Keep? I was hoping it was just a loan. Canada and Ottawa should have Emily back for NAOC 2022.

Thanks Tapio! I followed the entire replay (partly on FF), while watching the GPS tracking replay on the other screen. :-)
I did wonder during the entire broadcast if Emily would attempt to speak Finnish during the interview, but when she got the questions in English she didn't need to. I do suspect that she has picked up yet another language during her years in Finland. :-)

But she seemed to speak her English with a Finnish accent, didn't she?

But what were those geese and manatees advertising? That looked like a clever series of ads.

insurance company ads - live you life while you still can, after being reborn as a manatee (or whatever) it is too late (for cycling or whatever)

EWWW! That is a macabre theme for ads. Oh those FINNS!

Emily also has a very sweet Instagram account. Look up ekkempy.

So great to see Emily with her Finnish teammates standing on the podium and seeing their joy about their win. I can't find the GPS tracking reply of the entire event. Does anyone have the link?

Try this:

But warning: the terrain and forest look so incredible you will want to learn Finnish, get yourself to the nearest consulate and apply for a resident visa, and book an airline ticket, and prepare to move to Finland full time, all in about 3 days.
