Ski Orienteering on the programme of the 53rd Military World Ski Championships

Posted on | May 19, 2014 | Category: News

Following the successful ski orienteering event at the the 52nd Military World Ski Championships, the IOF has now received formal information from CISM that ski orienteering will be on the programme of the 53rd Military World Ski Championships as well.

The event will be held in Boden, Sweden in March 2015. This is the second time ski orienteering is on the programme. This time there will, however, be two competitions (middle distance and relay) instead of one as in this year’s Championship in Sodankylä, Finland.

“This is very good news”, says IOF Senior Vice President Leho Haldna, who is responsible for ski orienteering in the IOF Council. “This proves once more that ski orienteering is a sport that fits well in international games organised by other sports organisations than the IOF. We have been working on event quality for a longer time, and the work has began to bear fruit now.”
