WOC - A Quick Update from Finland

Choosing which maps to buy
 The World Orienteering Champs start this Sunday in Vuokatti, Finland. Team Canada has been on the ground training and preparing for their races for the past several days.
The team is off to training in the Green Devil
 When we aren't training in awesome (but slightly buggy) forest, studying maps or playing catching features, we have been swimming, playing volleyball and learning how to use the Finnish sauna.
The swimming lake at Vuokatti Sports Institute
The event centre and accommodation are at Vuokatti Sports Institute, a high performance training centre and sports holiday getaway. We never have to go far to find a good map.

Studying the maps
Tomorrow, the official model events start. We will keep you posted as we get ready for Sunday's long distance qualifier!


  1. Looks like fun! Good luck to all! :)

  2. The boys look good in the bra tops. But why, exactly, did you need to keep them on for the volleyball?
