With 18 days to go to JWOC 2013 in Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic the Australian Junior Team is getting very excited. Since selection at the Easter 3 Day competition in late March the team has been training hard for physical improvement and also advances in our orienteering technique. With great guidance from the Euro experienced Ian and Olle we have been analysing route choices from overseas events and trials in the area. Weighing up the pros and cons of the long, hilly route choice legs that we are unfamiliar with here at home has proved interesting and exciting.
But what might we actually get?
Matt and I asked Dad (Steve) to set us up some courses on old maps that could (with a bit of luck) resemble something similar to what we are set in Czech.
