JWOC preview

This week our JUNIORS get their time to shine. The Junior World Orienteering Championships, or JWOC, are being held in Borovets, Bulgaria this week.

Team Canada consists of experienced and first-time JWOC junior athletes. Unlike WOC, all athletes are able to run in all of the races they choose to! Below is the team list. You can click on the athletes' name to view their athlete profile:

Pia Blake (Whitehorse, YT)
Emma Sherwood (Calgary, AB)
Alexander Bergstrom (Ottawa, ON)
Trevor Bray (Whitehorse, YT)
Robbie Graham (Ottawa, ON)
Michael Svoboda (Calgary, AB)
Adam Woods (Coquitlam, BC)

Our athletes have a packed schedule this week:
Tuesday July 22 - Sprint
Wednesday July 23 - Long
Thursday July 24 - Rest day
Friday July 25 - Middle Qualifier
Saturday July 26 - Middle Final
Sunday July 27 - Relay


From the JWOC website, it appears that GPS trackers will be given to some athletes for all races except the middle qualifier. However, I can't find any information on the JWOC site on how to view the races live. We'll keep you updated as information becomes available.

We'll be updating your throughout the week on the athlete's progress for each race, so stay tuned to the blog, Facebook, Twitter, and keep sending your comments of support and encouragement to our athletes on these sites too!
