This week the big orienteering countries have announced their World Cup Teams. This follows World Cup Rounds 1 and 2 the previous two weekends.

The World Champs are in Edinburgh in July, with the medal races on 12th, 14th and 16th. World Orienteering Champs - Bulletin-3.

The IOF has announced they will be broadcast live on Eurovision Sport in UK, France and Germany. This is a free service.

On The Red Line Watching the Venla and Jukola relays next weekend it will be interesting to see which of these athletes run in the forest for their clubs a month before a Sprint World Champs. Venla\Jukola is a delightful weekend and for many one of their favourite weekend, so we expect most will be there.
