Finland won the overall team competition at this years’ European Youth Orienteering Championships (EYOC) after winning three of the four relays. The Finnish team had to travel back home without individual gold medals this year, though – with runners from Czech Republic (3 gold), Hungary (2 gold) and Germany, Poland and Denmark winning the individual races.

EYOC 2019 was organized in Belarus – with some quite tricky orienteering for the young and promising. EYOC is the step before the Junior World Championships (JWOC, organized in Denmark – starting on Sunday) were the big stars of tomorrow get the first opportunity to test themselves against competitors from all over Europe. Note that due to JWOC starting already Sunday, many of the top athletes in the age 17-20 did not participate at EYOC this year.

Gold medal winners on the long distance where Jonas Ferenc (Hungary, M18), Csilla Gardonyi (Hungary, W18), Martin Simsa (Czech Republic, M16) and Anna Karlova (Czech Republic, W16). The sprint distance was won by Stanislaw Kurzyp (Poland, M18),  Malin Agervig Kristiansson (Denmark, W18), Konstantin Kunckel (Germany, M16) and Marketa Mulickova (Czech Republic, W16). Relay winners were Finland (M18, W18 and W16) and Czech Republic (M16).

The courses in the forest races where on the tricky side, with many competitors struggling to find the controls in the dense forest.
