World Cup O-festivalen: Double Norway

Victories went to Anne Margrethe Hausken and Anders Nordberg at todays middle distance race which counted as the fourth race in this years orienteering World Cup. For Hausken, this was the best international middle distance race – a discipline which has been difficult for Hausken in the past. For Nordberg – this was a very welcome triumph after a miserable European Champs in Latvia.

Taking over after Simone

Simone Niggli-Luder has been the queen of women orienteering for the last years – and now it seems like Hausken is taking over. Hausken was World Cup leader already before the World Cup round started here in Oslo – and with her victory today, the Norwegian is increasing her lead.
