The Junior World Orienteering Championships kicks off this weekend. 6 South Africans will be sprinting through the old town of Scuol on Sunday. On Monday they will move to the Engadin Valley where they will tackle the Long distance event. On Wednesday the team will take part in the Middle Qualification race followed by the Middle Final on Thursday. The last race of the week is the 3 person forest Relay on Friday.
While Timothy Chambers and Roark Robinson will be competing in their last JWOC, Christie Courtnage, Kirsten Chambers, Carl Holmes and Andries Swart will be running in national colours for the first time. We wish the team and their support crew in Switzerland all the best for the competition week.
