06/08/2015 || Not at all as expected for Coupat ||Arena||

When Vincent Coupat came to Scotland he was preparing for one distance, and that wasn’t at all the Relay. Sprint was what he was selected for, but the championship didn’t, luckily for him, end with the first individual race. “It’s just a bit crazy and unbelievable”, he smiles after the Relay. He ran very well […]


05/08/2015 || Hubmann: “This was a real Relay gold” ||Arena||

Daniel Hubmann won his second Relay gold at WOC, but there’s a big, big difference in the two victories. In 2009 Daniel got the gold together with Matthias Merz and Baptiste Rollier. At that Relay Martin Johansson from Sweden hurt himself when he got a stick into the body on the last leg. Thierry Gueorgiou, […]


05/08/2015 || Danes had practiced for something they didn’t get! ||Arena||

For months the Danes have been training to do well in the Relay, but in some ways the Relay wasn’t what they have been training for. Already on the first leg Maja Alm set up a gap. She was several minutes in front of the second one to the first changeover. The Relay looked as […]

05/08/2015 || Hubmann: “A very special gold” ||Arena||

For Daniel Hubmann the victory on the Middle Distance was special in a lot of ways. The Swiss star won the Middle just three seconds in front of the young senior Lucas Basset from France. Hubmann had won gold in Sprint, Long and Relay from previous WOCs earlier. The Middle gold was his fourth individual […]


05/08/2015 || Billstam: “I felt I always had control” ||Arena||

Annika Billstam had to stop training for three weeks in the spring, and now has had a very long summer holiday, which was important for her second Middle gold in a row. Billstam was one of the favourites, but also not the biggest one. The Swede hadn’t been so impressive in recent months. “I have […]


04/08/2015 || WOC Special Rules updated ||News||

The IOF Council has at its meeting on August 3rd approved an update to the WOC special rules. The change is related to how the allocation of starting spots is calculated for the middle and long distance finals, i.e. the calculation of federation points and corresponding allocation of federations to divisions. This change corrects an unfairness in […]


04/08/2015 || World Orienteering Championships: Billstam retains title, Hubmann gets full medal set ||News||
