Oh so close – JWOC Sprint silver for Tommy - Tommy Hayes has won NZL’s 4th JWOC sprint medal in 5 years with a wonderful run in today’s race in Tampere. For a long time it looked as if Tommy was going to follow Matt Ogden and Tim Robertson as a JWOC champion, only to be pipped almost at the very end by Oli Ojanaho […] JWOC Middle Distance Qualification - Tommy Hayes, Devon Beckman and Dani Goodall have qualified for tomorrow’s middle distance final at JWOC in Tampere, Finland. Tommy was the most comfortable of the Kiwis qualifying 9th in Heat 3 only 2:15 behind heat winner Akseli Ruohola of Finland. Devon finished 16th in Heat 2 not wuite 3 and a half minutes back. […] WOC Report #9 – A dire day at the relay - Relay day at WOC2016 in Sweden was not particularly auspicious for NZL. However, it was nothing on relay day at WOC2017 in Estonia! Apart from Nick and Laura all the NZl team members either struggled or had disasters on the, admittedly, complex terrain. The day started badly whe Gene dropped almost 6 minutes on the […] WOC Report #8 – A good day at the middle - Today’s middle distance on Elva-Vitipalu saw the most satisfactory NZL performance of the week so far. Nick, recovering from the disappointment of his unfortunate DSQ in the long distance ran a good solid race to finish 39th in 41:11 and was closely backed up by Gene only 29 seconds behind in 41st. Between them these […] WOC Report #7 – Rough justice at the end of the long - What was a good day at the WOC long distance for NZL was soured at the end when Nick, after an excellent first ever run at WOC, was disqualified for inadvertently trespassing into out of bounds on the short loop after the arena run through. Without this he would have registered an excellent 34th place […] WOC Report #5 – Sprint reflections - Having at last had the chance to walk around the sprint terrain in Tartu I completely agree with Tim’s comments that he posted on his blog regarding the courses from yesterday. To qualify – what a magnificant sprint area it was up on the hill: grassy slopes with a network of paths between statues, bridges, […] WOC Report #4: Disappointment in Tartu - Unfortunately WOC sprint final 2017 will not go down as a great day for NZ orienteering. Both Tim and Laura dropped time early on and Lizzie suffered a recurrence of the breathing problems have hindered her sprint performances in the past few years. The courses themselves were very atypical of what Kiwis probably expect of […] WOC Report #3 – Three Kiwis into WOC Sprint Final - Despite late changes to the courses, following today’s qualification heats, run in persistent rain on largely hilly parkland above the streets of the old town, three of the NZL team – Tim, Laura and Lizzie – will line up in the WOC sprint final early Sunday morning New Zealand time. The truth of rumours floating around […]

In reply to the Board on JWOC and Schools Eligibility - In reply to the Board on the rationale for the exclusion of JWOC members from the New Zealand Secondary Schools Team Edit 2/05/2016 Subsequent to publication it has come to my attention that the proposal to exclude JWOC runners from the Schools Team was actually included as a recommendation as part of the High […]
