Marquita Gelderman (North West) achieved three gold medals in the Sprint, Middle and Long Distance events at the World Masters Mountain Bike Orienteering Championships 2017 held in France 29th July – 5th August 2017.
In the men’s class New Zealand’s Tommy Hayes showed yet again that New Zealand is a top Sprint nations -taking the Silver medal only 8 seconds behind Ojanaho.
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 […]

The highlight of October without a doubt has been Tim Robertson’s performance in coming 4th in the final race of the 2016 IOF World Cup, leaving him in 16th place overall in the series.

Time for thoughts about where we currently are at and what changes/modifications to we need to make to both the High Performance plan and how we generally approach HP orienteering in New Zealand. Congratulations to the Schools’ Team for some excellent results this week in the Australian Schools Championships.

The four Kiwis – Imogene Scott, Lizzie Ingham, Gene Beveridge and Chris Forne – all had mixed […]
