IOF Newsletter is published

Posted on | April 13, 2017 | Category: News

Today, subscribers to the IOF Newsletter got a fresh batch of articles, news updates and photos straight to their email inbox.

The eyes of the orienteering world turn to Oceania for the next few weeks, to follow the action at the Oceania Orienteering Championships and the World Masters Orienteering Championships, both taking place in New Zealand. An interview with IOF FootO Athletes’ Commission member Lizzie Ingham will get you excited to follow the Oceania Champs this weekend. Excellent terrains, a great atmosphere and fierce rivalry await the Oceania orienteers who will fight for regional titles and bonus WOC spots.

Following the Oceania Champs, hundreds of orienteers will converge on Auckland for the World Masters Championships and what promises to be part of an orienteering carnival seldom seen in this part of the world.

Of course, the newsletter also includes important news from the IOF. The IOF Council had a meeting recently, and a summary of the most notable decisions makes it easy to follow the development of orienteering. Most notable from this council meeting is perhaps the approval of the long awaited International Specification for Orienteering Maps.

The IOF is also very active on the international sports scene. Make sure to read about what we got up to at this year’s  SportAccord Convention.

For TrailO enthusiasts, the newsletter offers interesting reading on the European Cup in TrailO. Not heard of it? Dive in and find out all about the exciting competition.
