Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Monday, July 13, 2009
A few notes on ItalyWhen I was just 5 years old I lived in Italy. I don't remember much. I don't remember the language at all. Too bad, because I'd like to be able to read Stegal67's report of JWOC. He writes about the tough fight way in the back of the field in the relay. Google translate gives you an idea, but Google translate doesn't go a great job.
The JWOC in Italy has inspired me. Italy has always been on my list of place I'd like to orienteer. I've been especially intrigued by some of the old city sprint maps and, of course, orineteering in Venice is on my list of things-to-do-before-I-die.
Stegal67's report makes mention of one of the all-time great TV moments from the Olympics...the 4x10Km relay at the 1994 Olympics in Norway.

You're correct in your assumption. What a magic race!
