In response to the recent bushfires that wiped out the areas designated for upcoming selection trials Orienteering Australia has determined that the recent Australian Easter 3 Days competition will serve as the ONLY selection races for the Australian team to compete in the World Orienteering Championships in Japan later this year.

Chair of Selectors Iain Prossor said earlier today, “It’s not ideal but after consultation we decided to make the best of a bad situation. The racing over Easter was top class and I’m sure the racing was a fair indication of the talent on offer – I’m just glad we got the results we wanted”.
