Sprint Scotland, mimicking the World Champs Sprint Weekend, had three races in two days. All but one of the British WOC team sprinters were there, and they were joined by some of the best in the world. It was generally assessed as terrific preparation immediately before the World Champs. All the races had World Ranking (WRE) status.
Meanwhile other WOC athletes were doing their final preparations too - some days of O-ringen, last training camps for example - and writing about them. And the World Universities wrapped up with the relays.

Kris Jones, short video from final race (on Instagram) There's a challenge for someone - videoing the fastest runner in British Orienteering on a sprint course.
There were training days beforehand - interesting piece on specific training by Kirstin Maxwell writing on Attackpoint.
After a home training camp, and one in Latvia, Lina Strand was in France with two Swedish teammates.
And plenty of runners were with 16,000 other orienteers at O-Ringen in the High Coast of Sweden
