Norwegian team for WOC in Scotland

annemargrethehausken_WOC2009LongFinal 2

Veterans Hans Gunnar Omdal and Anne Margrethe Hausken Nordberg are part of the Norwegian team for the World Championships in Scotland which was selected earlier this week.

No Norwegian athlete will run all disciplines – and only one athlete, Anne Margrethe Hausken (photo above from WOC 2009), will run both urban and forest disciplines.


Compared to the original team published on Tuesday, Ida Marie Næss Bjørgul replaces Anne Johanne Lind due to injury.
