World Orienteering Championships

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The World Orienteering Championships were first held in 1966. They were held biennially up to 2003 (with the exception of 1978 and 1979). Since 2003, competitions have been held annually.

Originally there were only two competitions: an individual race and a relay. In 1991 a short distance race (roughly 25 minutes) was added and a sprint race was added in 2001. In 2014 a sprint relay was added with two men and two women participating and with starting order woman-man-man-woman.

The current championship events are therefore:

  • Relay - for three-person teams
  • Long distance - previously called classic distance
  • Middle distance - previously called short distance
  • Sprint
  • Sprint relay - four-person teams, two men and two women

2009 Note: ^ In the 3rd leg Martin Johansson (Sweden) was in the lead when he suffered a serious injury; Thierry Gueorgiou (France), Anders Nordberg (Norway), and Michal Smola (Czech Republic) gave up their lead positions and rescued him. Interpretation of International Orienteering Federation (IOF) competition rules was at issue: rule 26.13 states "The organiser must void a competition if at any point it becomes clear that circumstances have arisen which make the competition unfair or dangerous for the competitors." After much deliberation on whether or not to void the relay, the organizers declared that it stood.[1][2]
