Greetings Canadian Orienteers!
It's that time of year again where we start getting exciting news from our elite athletes racing abroad! Coming up quick, we have four athletes competing in this year's second round of World Cups, with 3 individual competitions and a Sprint Relay June 3rd –7th 2015. The World Cups are being hosted by Halden SK in partnership with the Norwegian Orienteering Federation and the WOC2016 organizers in partnership with Swedish Orienteering. This will be applicable terrain for next year's WOC, so will be a great experience for those who are running. On the male side we will have Robbie Anderson and Michael Svoboda and on the female side we will have Louise Oram and Emily Kemp competing.
If you're interested in learning more, see below for the website and bulletin:
And/or stay posted here for more information and results!
Go Canada Go! We will be cheering from here!
