Record entry for World Championships in Denmark

Posted on | May 23, 2006 | Category: News

The record for the number of nations participating will be equalled when the 2006 World Championships take place in Denmark at the beginning of August.

A total of 41 of the 48 IOF full-member nations have submitted entries, the same number as competed in Switzerland in 2003. 348 athletes – 154 women and 194 men – have been registered to compete, and there will be 31 women’s and 38 men’s relay teams. Including team officials the total number of entries is 450.

Björn Persson, IOF Senior Event Adviser for the World Championships, expressed his delight at the record entry. “May I congratulate the WOC organisers. Let me say on behalf of IOF that we are very impressed and most satisfied with this achievement! You have certainly managed to attract the whole orienteering world to the Aarhus region and to WOC in Denmark!” he said.
