Congratulations to Mikayla Cooper and Brodie Nankervis on their selection in the Australian team to compete in the World Orienteering Championships in Denmark in June/July this year. This is an especially huge achievement for Mikayla, who is still a junior and has also been selected to compete in the World Junior Orienteering Championships (to be held in Portugal in July) and the World University Championships (Switzerland in August).

This year, WOC is a ‘sprint only’ format, meaning that Brodie and Mikayla will be racing flat out in a series of individual sprint, knockout sprints and mixed sprint relay races. We can’t wait to follow their performances live from the comfort of our lounge rooms – or perhaps even in person now that Europe is back on the orienteering agenda!
