IFK Göteborg won the big relay event 25-Manna in Stockholm this weekend, an event that gathers nearly 10000 participants. At the same time they were announced as the ambassador club for WOC 2019.

The Norwegian Orienteering Federation is very pleased with the news that the government is proposing to grant the World Orienteering Championships 2019 2 million NOK on the next years government budget, says Astrid Waaler Kaas, president of the Norwegian Orienteering Federation.

Once upon a time Østfold was a just a collection of skerries.

Orienteering Columnist, Hans Werp, wrote this on his Facebook page last saturday:

On this day (15th September) 40 years ago, the individual WOC was organised by NOF (Norwegian Orienteering Fedration) and Eiker OL. From the arena at Bermingrud the runners could enjoy some of the best terrain Norway and Eiker had to offer.

Østfold Energi has signed a deal to become the main sponsor on a national level for WOC 2019. This obviously is music to the ears of WOC Director Per Bergerud.

In the fourth edition of WOC2019's GPS Analysis Column World of O's Jan Kocbach takes a look at the GPS-tracking from the 2018 pre WOC and World Cup long distance - a race dominated by the Swedish runners, with Gustav Bergman and Tove Alexandersson on top. How did Bergman and Alexandersson attack the Norwegian forest? Another must-read for those interested in WOC 2019 terrain.

Straight on from WOC to inspecting next year’s terrain along with representatives from national broadcaster NRK and IOF.

Big margin in favour of the Swedes among the women – a thriller all the way to the end for the men.

Tove Alexandersson with performance that outclassed the rest – William Lind victorious after a highly dramatic sprint.

The Swedes Johan Runesson and Albin Ridefelt claimed the top two spots in the prologue this morning, and will start first in the pursuit on Saturday afternoon in Aremark, Østfold. Tove Alexandersson has good margin before the pursuit in the women’s class.
