Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Saturday, May 30, 2009
Canada WOC team ages - 2009Since I looked at the US WOC team ages, I figured I'd do the same for Canada.
Canada's WOC team averages 30.4 years old. The median is 29.
But, there is a caveat. I had trouble figuring out the ages of some of Canada's runners. My main source, runners.worldofo.com doesn't have much info for the Canadians.
The Canadian team has just two women - Louise Oram and Carol Ross. I don't know the Canadian selection rules, but I'm also disappointed when a nation doesn't send enough for a relay team.
The Canadian team also has someone I'd never heard of before. I don't spend a lot of time following Canadian orienteering, but I'm still a bit surprised to see a name I didn't know. Will Critchley is the guy.

Don't feel bad - I never heard of him until about a week before the races either. He's quite newly back into orienteering after a lengthy flirtation with competitive nordic skiing. From what I've seen, he's physically up to par or better by North American elite standards but has plenty of scope for technical improvement left.Post a Comment
