With team preparation and training complete, the Australian team of 5 is ready for the World Orienteering Championships commencing today, Sunday 16 August with the Middle Distance qualification race.
The training camp was based in the beautiful village of Lillafüred, only 10 minutes from Miskolc, where the team made the most of training opportunities in forests located close to their accommodation. Training maps for all event types were readily available, with athletes able to select maps according to scale, terrain and event type for specific training purposes.
With minds and bodies relaxed and refreshed, Hanny, Grace and Jasmine take on the world in the Middle Distance qualification.
