Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Sudden on Oringen as a motivatorSudden wrote a bit about North American juniors. Worth a look:
...if NA runners ever get the chance (=time and $) to travel to Sweden and O-Ringen, they should do it. It is such an awesome experience and motivator. Juniors for sure would have a blast (and I am sure they have it at this very moment since the 6th stage should be in full swing by now - I watched 'Wedding Crashers' with my mom, Times have definitely changed). I have never been to a JWOC, but if I was a junior or a parent, I would consider going to O-Ringen instead.
The US had three runners in the top 10 in M18 today. Sure, there is M18E and M18 Long too, but I am guessing that these guys are feeling much more confident with these results and races than how they felt after their JWOC performances. If they ran JWOC.
I tend to agree with Sudden.
