More world champions ready for The World Games

Posted on | April 14, 2009 | Category: News

The world’s best orienteers are travelling this summer to Kaohsiung, Chinese Taipei, where The World Games takes place in mid-July. Russia has already earlier confirmed the participation of a strong team headed by the reigning sprint world champion Andrey Khramov, and now six more countries have nominated their athletes to the games. Amongst others, the world champions Dana Brozkova, Daniel Hubmann, Heli Jukkola and Minna Kauppi are going to Kaohsiung to compete in two individual events – sprint and middle distance – and in relay.

To secure the highest possible quality of The World Games orienteering events, the IOF has appointed a support group of experts to assist the local organisers. The support group has visited the competition venues several times since 2006, and is also currently in Kaohsiung.

Altogether twenty-one orienteering nations have qualified for participation in the individual distances, and seventeen nations for participation in the mixed team relay. The World Games orienteering events take place 16-20 July 2009.
