The tabloid title is copied from the Norwegian Broadcaster TV2. With the Open Nordic Champs and the start of the World Cup season coming up on Saturday, Norwegian TV2 – the biggest Norwegian private Broadcaster – gets some focus on orienteering again. The title above is from their short preview video/article where they’ve taken Anne Margrethe Hausken and Anders Nordberg out to make an interview and show some running in the forest.
It is good to see that the Nordic Champs get some TV-coverage – you can see the video here. There will be extensive TV-coverage in Finland from the Nordic Champs, and the Swedish Orienteering Federation reports that NOC 2009 Middle and Sprint Finals will be broadcast live on Swedish TV4 Sport on Tuesday and Wednesday.
If somebody knows it there will be any TV-coverage available on the Internet, please add a comment below, and I’ll update the text accordingly.
