Announcing the World University Orienteering Championship Team!

The COF’s High Performance Committee (HPC) is excited to announce the Canadian 2012 World University Orienteering Championship (WUOC) team!

Held every 2 years, WUOC is a great opportunity for up and coming orienteers to experience a competitive environment while racing against some of the best orienteers in the world! The HPC is encouraging Canadian orienteers who are also university students to attend WUOC as an excellent training opportunity for the World Orienteering Championships (WOC).

Canada will be represented by Damian Konotopetz, Eric Kemp, Jeff Teutsch, Robbie Anderson, Will Critchley, and Louise Oram. This year Pam James, former national team athlete, will head the team as the coach and team leader . WUOC is being held in Alicante, Spain from July 2-6th.

WUOC is organized by FISU (International University Sports Federation). Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) works with the COF to coordinate Canada’s involvement in the championships.

You can follow the team and show your support on this blog, on Facebook, and on Twitter

  1. Great team! Good luck - looking forward to following these events. Speaking of which - what are the WUOC events? And what kind of terrain is it? I recall very rocky ground in that part of the world
