The men’s team is larger due to extra allocation of places from Oceania Championships.
At the OA Board meeting on 30th of March, a decision was made that Orienteering Australia
would not support or endorse sending Australian based athletes to WOC 2021 due to ongoing
travel restrictions and the COVID-19 situation in Europe. Whilst unfortunate, the likelihood of this
decision and the reasons behind it were signalled in the selection criteria.
