FIS Cross Country Junior – and U23 World Championships Lygna, February 20.-27.02 2022
LYGNA SKISENTER´S EVENT SPONSORS
Welcome to Norway and to Lygna Ski center! On behalf of the Norwegian Ski Association, it is a great pleasure to welcome you all to FIS Nordic Junior and U23 World Ski Championships in Cross Country skiing. Since Zakopane did not have the opportunity to organize the cross-country part of the Junior and U23 World Ski Championships, we are happy that Lygna was chosen as the host. Lygna Ski center is an experienced organizer in a very snow-safe place, very close to both Oslo and the airport. We are therefore happy that Lygna with its 7 owner clubs, said yes to this great event for the next generation of cross-country skiers. I can promise you that we will do our very best that the championship will be a good experience for all of you. TV pictures from the championship will be produced. We hope that many TV stations will use these TV signals to give both the cross-country sport, the championships and you as athletes and coaches a good promotion. I believe that during the championships we are going to see future stars coming up. I wish you all welcome to fabulous and exciting days in Norway and good luck with the upcoming season! Yours Sincerely Norwegian Ski Association Erik Røste President
Welcome to the junior / U23 WC at Lygna! It is a great pleasure and honor to welcome the leading young cross-country skiers in the world to Gran and Lygna ski center! In record time, the enthusiastic volunteers at the ski resort got together and planned this world championship - and fortunately for all of us, the covid pandemic is in a phase that makes it possible to carry it out. As mayor, I am very proud of the people that over the years have used their free time and built this great facility. In Norway, we have a beautiful word, dugnad, which is not easy to translate into other languages. Dugnad describes when people, many people, sacrifice their free time and work for something bigger, something they believe in - without any other form of payment than the satisfaction of getting something done with, and for, others. This entire ski resort, and all small and large competitions and championships that have been arranged at Lygna, have been carried out by volunteers, with dugnad. It’s impressive and important work, and a great enrichment for our local community. The facility was upgraded significantly for the National Ski championship in 2017. The biathlon arena with 35 targets is completely new, built for the 2016/2017 season. This spacious and versatile arena is rigged for everything from small club races to large international events. The tracks are approved for international competitions by the NSF. The stadium and biathlon facility are lit up by floodlight, as are 3.5 km of the tracks. Therefore, both training and competitions can be arranged in the evening. Together with the light trail at Lygnasæter, there are a total of 10 km of light trails in the area. With its location 620 m.o.h. we can offer facility with snow guarantee, centrally located in eastern Norway. Together with Lygnasæter Hotel and a large number of beautiful cabins nearby, the Ski Stadium has become a widely used arena for both training and competition. We hope you enjoy your stay, the volunteers will to do everything they can for you to be able to train and compete under the best conditions! Good luck! We look forward to following the championship! Regards Randi Eek Thorsen Proud mayor of Gran municipality
Welcome to FIS Nordic Junior and U23 World Ski Championships 2022 in Lygna. It is with great pleasure that Lygna ski center welcomes you to the WC junior and U23 during the last week of February 2022. We are humble and filled with joy and excitement to host the world's best juniors and U23 skiers here at Lygna. Since 2015, the venue has been upgraded with new tracks, a new stadium and other infrastructure that is necessary to be able to carry out large events. Lygna ski center has in recent years been the host of many major national cross-country competitions. These include the Norwegian Championships part 1 in 2017, National Championships for 15- and 16-year olds in 2018, the Norwegian Championships part 2 in 2019 and the National Cup for both juniors and seniors in 2020. Establishing a modern ski venue is not possible without great partners. Public gambling has been the main source of funding. In addition, Gran municipality, which is now the host municipality for the WC, has been a very positive partner. It still wouldn’t be possible without other local contributors. We would especially like to mention Brandbu and Tingelstad Almenning, which is the landowner, Sparebankstiftelsen Gran and Varigfondet Hadeland. Lygnasæter Hotel, located 600 meters from the stadium, has also always been a loyal supporter and contributor. In addition, the collaboration with our neighbors at the shooting range is important during large events. Lygna is located at 620m above sea level, and is a very snow safe area. As such, there is in addition to competition tracks, a fantastic ski trail network on the entire Hadelandsåsen that starts from Lygna. From Oslo in the south to Gjøvik in the North, over 200km of trails are available and widely used by Hadeland’s residents, along with visitors from the Oslo area and those who have cabins at Lygna. Hosting a World Cross-Country Championship will be a huge team effort, and it would not be possible without all the volunteers who show up year after year. There will be about 400 volunteers in action during the World Championships in February, and they all deserve a big thank you! Once again, we would like to give everyone a warm welcome to the World Championships at Lygna! We hope it will be an excellent week with great competitions and equal conditions for all. It is important to us that you have a wonderful time here and we will do our best to make sure you leave Lygna with good memories. Best regards Lygna skisenter Terje Nilsen Manager

Anna from Hadeland is in great shape leading up the World Championship
from Lygna. It’s going to be a lot of fun racing here, Anna says a few days before the WC kicks off.
Anna Heggen (19) from Harestua is ready for the WC at home. - I like the tracks and I am ready to give it my all, the meritorious junior says.
Home advantage? She is not sure that having been at the tracks at Lygna ski center gives her any great advantage. - It doesn’t take a huge effort to learn the track, but I hope I’ll have a small advantage. The down-to-earth athlete wants to participate in as many distances as possible during the championship, but still highlights Sunday's sprint as a favorite. - I like skate sprint quite well, she says modestly. Her results also reveals that she is pretty good at the skate sprint - and a number of other distances. Two weekends before the WC she won both races in the Norwegian championship for juniors quite superbly. - How do you think it will hold up for the World Championship? - What’s fun about international championships, is that you don’t know a whole lot about your competitors - there are new names showing up every year. That also makes it a bit challenging to set goals based on results, the cross country skier says.
Facts • Anna Heggen • Date of birth 08.08.2002, class women 19/20 • Cross-country skiing for Svea ski team and is on the junior national team • Grew up at Harestua, lives in Lillehammer • Is a cross-country skier and works part time in a nursing home. • Participated in the junior WC and Olympics for youth. Top placements in the Norwegian nationals and Norwegian cup for juniors
A ski family with top results The junior talks about a playful approach to cross-country skiing from a young age. - It’s always been cross-country skiing for me. I come from a family where everyone has been skiing - siblings, cousins, mum, dad, grandpa. As a kid, I used to do well in ski races, and that has probably been of importance for my motivation. I must admit that I am driven by results, Anna says. In the Heggen family, two younger siblings are closing in on Anna in terms of results. Little brother Lars (16) recently became Norwegian champion in his class (the same days as Anna topped the podium). - I used to be able to beat him, but that’s not possible anymore. Little sister Kari (14) is also a good cross country skier.
International championships are not new for Anna, who has competed in both the Youth Olympic Games and junior World Championship. However, she’s never been a part of a WC held at her home tracks. - I have a lot of friends and family coming to watch. I’ve also got many good memories
- She probably wants to do as well as us. And there can be both advantages and disadvantages to having to reach for that, the big sister reflects.
regime. As such, her support system consists of several people. - My head coach works at NTG, but I have a lot to do with the coach on the junior national team. I am also a part of Team Hadeland, and they are the ones who take care of my skis on race day, Anna says. Being part of the junior national team has been of great importance to Anna during the last two years. - As athletes, we learn a lot from each other. It’s very good to get to know and compete with people that are on a high level. - What does the future look like for you as a cross country skier? - I don’t think that far ahead. I will keep going as long as it’s fun. And right now it is. But of course, I hope I can be at the top level in the senior class in a while, concludes Anna Heggen.
- Will keep going as long as it’s fun The cross-country skier moved to Lillehammer to go to a sports specific high school (NTG) when she was 16. Lillehammer is still her home town and although she graduated last year, she’s still following the school’s training
