From Uruguay to Uruguay with a stop at World Orienteering Championships

Posted on | March 27, 2017 | Category: News, Newsletter

Pablo Sanguinetti from Uruguay was one of the participants at the WOC Clinic 2016. He has high goals and big plans about developing orienteering in Uruguay.

Was the WOC Clinic as you expected?
– Indeed, the WOC Clinic met my expectations. It was all very organized and there was a lot of professionalism from those who were in charge of it. It helps a lot to get a new point of view of the global development of orienteering.

 How was your experience of the atmosphere at WOC?
– It was a warm atmosphere, shared with all the nice people from different countries. They made me feel at home.

 How has the WOC Clinic affected your way of thinking regarding orienteering, organisation and competition?
– It has improved and it is inspiring to know that there is a whole group that works day and night with the progress of this beloved sport. It was very interesting to see the professional competitors and organisers and I learned a lot from them.

 How do you want to contribute to the development of orienteering in Uruguay?
– I will contribute with whatever the federation wants me to, either to promote the sport, organise competitions or participate in events.

 Your were representing and voting for Uruguay in the IOF General Assemby, how did that feel?
– I felt a huge responsibility. Our country was making history being a full member of the IOF. I had to represent it in the best possible way, always under the guidance of the President of the Uruguayan Federation.

 With your new experience, how do you think Uruguay should work to become a stronger orienteering country?
– It is already growing step by step, with the obvious limitations that every small federation has. From my point of view, I think we should try to link as many persons as possible into our sport and try to involve them more and more. If we have more persons developing their orienteering technique, it will be easier to inspire and teach even more.
