In the women Australia, USA and Canada have all qualified to be in division 2.

So for Australia next year, the allocation of places per event is as follows:

 

  • Sprint Qualification & Final    3 men    3 women
  • Mixed Sprint Relay                   2 men    2 women
  • Long Final                                 1 man    2 women
  • Middle Final                               1 men    2 women
  • Bush Relay                                3 men     3 women

 

From IOF website:

For the 2014 World Orienteering Championships the following countries will have three nation start slots in the middle and long distance finals:

Women   Men
SUI   NOR
FIN   SUI
SWE   FRA
NOR   SWE
RUS   RUS
CZE   LAT
DEN   CZE
GBR   FIN

The following countries will have two starting slots:

LTU   UKR
UKR   DEN
FRA   EST
LAT   LTU
AUT   AUT
EST   ITA
AUS   BLR
POL   GBR
ITA   HUN
USA   BUL
ESP   POL
HUN   ESP
CAN   GER
GER   POR

Rest of the countries will have one guaranteed starting slot for both middle and long distance race. The countries closest to the category two are New Zealand, China, Bulgaria, Belgium, and Japan in women’s class and Belgium, Slovakia, Australia, Ireland, and New Zealand in men’s class.
The new model means that all countries are guaranteed at least one start slot in both middle and long distance finals. In addition, all nations are allowed to have three runners in the sprint qualification race and one team in the sprint relay and in the “traditional” relay.
