WMOC 2016: Maps and Results

Sweden with twelve Gold medals and Finland with eleven Gold medals were the strongest nations then the World Masters Orienteering Championships (WMOC) were organized in Estonia the last week. More than 3000 athletes were at the start.

The championships consists of a sprint final along with a single qualification race and a long distance final along with two qualification races. Nine competitors managed to win the double – Gold in both sprint and long distance: Natasha Key from Australia in W45 (who will also compete for Australia at the World Championships in Sweden later this August), Marja Viirmann from Estonia in W55,  Kari Timenes Laugen from Norway in W70,  Ebba-Lisa Flygar from Sweden in W80, Astrid Andersson from Sweden in W95, Dmitry Mihalkin from Belarus in M35, Petteri Muukkonen from Finland in M40, Helmut Conrad from Germany in M75, and Arvo Majoinen in M90.
