Orienteering Australia is pleased to announce the appointment of Fredrik Johansson as the incoming High Performance Administrator.
Fredrik brings to the role a vast amount of knowledge and experience, and more than a little Swedish influence.
Fredrik, originally from Sweden, moved to Australia 10 years ago and has been a member of Melbourne Forest Racers since 2012.
Fredrik started orienteering as an 8-year old in 1980 and went to a local orienteering sports high school from 16 to 18 years of age. He competed in many of the large orienteering relays in Scandinavia with his Swedish club (Savedalens AIK) during his senior years, including twice running in teams with a top 40 finish at Jukola. Before migrating to Australia Fredrik was the responsible coach for his Swedish club’s training for numerous years, and was coach for the senior women’s team for several years.
With Fredrik’s appointment, Orienteering Australia would like to take this opportunity to thank outgoing HP Administrator, Ian Prosser.
Ian has supported OA’s HP program since 2016, and OA is indebted to him for his support and invaluable contribution in setting up a solid foundation for Fredrik to build on.
