WUOC Relays & Middle: Maps and Results

Sweden dominated both the Relay and the Middle distance at the World Orienteering University Championships in Hungary with four Gold medals of four possible, while Great Britain took a popular Gold medal at the Sprint Relay ahead of Czech Republic and Norway. Oskar Sjögren and Lilian Forsgren were the Swedish Gold medal winners at the Middle distance.

In the men’s relay Sweden won 3 minutes ahead of Switzerland with Finland another half minute behind. In the women’s relay Czech Republic was closest to Sweden, 1 minute behind, with Norway in third another 5 minutes behind.

The championships has offered very interesting and varied orienteering with good courses and high level on the competitors. Sweden shows yet again that they have many runners on very high level. Great Britain has shown excellent results in the Sprint – especially on the men’s side. It is also good to see several strong juniors competing in the top at WUOC – one of them Finnish Junior World Champion Long distance Anna Haataja who took the Gold medal also at WUOC Long distance.
