MEET OUR AMBASSADORS
MEET OUR AMBASSADOR, ANDREASAndreas is driven by the diverse and unpredictable nature of OCR. Andreas’ passion for OCR is evident in most parts of his life
He loves to train for OCR and does so every day. Training for OCR involves various types of training; weight training, flexibility, running, and balance exercises. Therefore, it can be challenging to find places to practice OCR one to one. To overcome this challenge, and to make his many training hours more efficient and convenient, Andreas has taken advantage of his profession as a craftsman and constructed a frame for OCR training in his backyard. So, he doesn’t have to pack a bag or go to a sports center - he can do all his training in his own back yard. Besides his full-time job as a craftsman, Andreas also teaches an OCR course at a folk school once a week.
Andreas is driven by the diverse and unpredictable nature of OCR.
OCR activates every muscle fiber as it encompasses running, strength, and balance. In OCR you will always have a forte and a weakness. The diversity of the race combined with the ever-changing challenges throughout the race makes it impossible to predict, who will actually win the race. The competitors will alternate in placings – until the very moment they reach the finish line. This unpredictability is what pique Andreas’ competitiveness – and what makes it exciting throughout the race, even when it is though. Andreas became the Danish Champion in 2018 and placed 4th in the European Championship same year – his strongest forte is running.
