    Where comes the information, that most of SV runners have Swedish roots. As far as I know, all their top runners are finns. Until now.

    I think they mean most runners will speak swedish instead of finnish?
    Swedish is definitely a lot easier for Jeremy to learn :)

    "Tuurlijk wil ik dat, dat wil ik al sinds ik op mijn 10 jaar begon met oriënteren... Een droom, iets wat ik altijd al gehoopt heb." (blog jeremy)

    Kan mij moeilijk voorstellen dat je je daarmee bezighoudt op 10-jarige leeftijd... maar het oogt wel mooi natuurlijk, die zin.
