WOC2015 Report #7, middle distance – joy and pain at Darnaway - 05/08/2015 09:37
By Malcolm Ingham

Today’s middle distance has brought it all for team NZL – world class runs by Lizzie and Matt, solid performances from Laura and Renee, but an injury to Tim which cast a bit of a damper on an otherwise good day. Particularly pleasing was that on courses at Darnaway, venue for WOC in 1976, which […]

Tim Sprint WOC 2015
WOC2015 Report # 6 – the sprint final - 03/08/2015 10:23
By Malcolm Ingham

After the highs of the sprint qualifying and sprint relay the only bright spot of the sprint final was Tim’s excellent 20th place in the men’s race. The three women all had difficulties of different kinds. Laura started very strongly and was well up at the half-way point but suffered from stitch and dropped rapidly […]

WOC2015 Report #5 – the sprint relay - 02/08/2015 10:14
By Malcolm Ingham

A storming finish by Laura, mowing down the Italian runner on the short steep climb to the last control, has seen Team NZL finish 12th in tonight’s sprint relay held in Nairn. This is one place higher than last year’s finish in Italy, but slightly frustrating as the top 10 was in touching distance. Lizzie […]

By Malcolm Ingham

After all the build-up WOC is finally underway and today was almost, but not quite, a dream start for Team NZL – all 3 women (Lizzie, Laura and Imogene) qualifying for the sprint final, Tim also cruising in, and Gene and Shamus coming agonizingly close to joining him –  missing out by only 16 and […]

WOC2015 Report #3 – the final countdown - 31/07/2015 10:10
By Malcolm Ingham

With D-Day, or rather S-Day, fast approaching, the last 2 days have seen our focus largely switch to the sprints with visits to Elgin, Forres and Nairn (twice) to run (through Elgin – not embargoed), walk (through Forres and Nairn – embargoed for running), and today run (through the model sprint map at Nairn). Whereas […]

WOC2015 Report #2.5 – driving technology - 30/07/2015 04:02
By Malcolm Ingham

As you may notice from the photo attached to the first report, we have a nearly new Ford 8-seater minivan as part of our transport arrangements. This wonder of driving technology comes complete with all kinds of mysterious knobs and buttons and a digital display on the dashboard which produces really useful messages for the […]

WOC2015 Report #2 – the joys of a Scottish summer - 29/07/2015 06:59
By Malcolm Ingham

Although the weather in Amsterdam may have cleared sufficiently to allow the remaining team members to join us in Inverness, the Scottish summer seems rather wet as Wednesday morning dawns with more r

Orienteering NZ Compass Point e-Newsletter – July 2015 - 28/07/2015 11:15
By Catriona McBean

President’s Rant – July 2015 Not surprisingly July has seen our young junior athletes taking all our attention. During the early part of the month, I’m sure that most of us were actively following JWOC from Norway with no indication of what was about to unfold. It’s hard to find the appropriate superlatives to acclaim […]
