WOC goalsA few days ago I posted a question to the U.S. O' Team's yahoo group:
Has the ESC or USOF Board set any goals for the WOC? What are they?
The answer to the second question seems to be:
To qualify for the individual finals and to do "well" in the relays.
Those seem reasonable goals, if not the goals I'd set.
Qualifying for individual finals is difficult for Americans, but not impossible. Doing "well" in the relays can often be measured by beating the Canada.
The answer to the first question is...well, I'm not sure. I'm not sure if the ESC (i.e. "executive steering committee") or the USOF board have set goals. I'm not sure who has set the goals.
I suspect that neither the ESC nor the USOF board have set goals (but I could be wrong). That isn't really very good.
What about the JWOC?
The Junior WOC is coming up and I've no idea about goals for the U.S. at the JWOC. I poked around the internet a bit to see if I could find any info about the junior team. The USOF has a junior page with a few links but little info. posted by Michael | 8:52 PM
