Irish team for WOC 2011 has been announced!
Three FVO members feature in the Irish team which has been selected for the World Orienteering Championships to be held in Chambery, France. Rosalind Hussey has been selected for the women's team for the Sprint and Long races, while Marcus Pinker has been selected for the men's team for the Middle and Long race. Kyle Heron will be the team manager.
Ivan Millar, the Irish High Performance Director, said
This year was another tough selection campaign with many squad members having excellent results during the races making it a very difficult final decision for the team selectors. The terrains at this years world champs in Chambery will provide a special challenge to all orienteers taking part. The Irish team members involved have shown that they have the ability to meet this challenge and we wish them well in the build-up to the big competition.
Well done to Rosalind, Marcus and Kyle.
