It seems somewhat odd to be writing this in Wellington while a substantial number of NZL orienteers are in Australia at the Oceania Carnival. Nevertheless it has allowed me to keep an eye on both the goings on over the ditch over the weekend, and the happenings in Switzerland where the final round of the […]

After really promising starts in both the women’s and men’s relays team NZL faded to finish 21st and 19th respectively on a day when nearly 24 hours of rain, varying from near torrential to torrential, turned the Mork arena into a quagmire. The overcast skies and the late start (6.30 pm for the men) set […]
