Occassional thoughts about orienteering

US WOC team ageI took a look at the ages of WOC team runners. I've been doing this most years going back to 2003. I'm not certain, but I'm thinking that this year's team might be the oldest I've seen.
The average age is 33.4 and the median is 31.
For comparison, before this year the oldest US WOC team that I'm aware of was 2004, when the average age was 32.4 and the median was 31.5.
This year's team is a very experienced team. That's despite having 3 runners who haven't run a WOC before. Using maprunner's WOC database, I see a total of 119 WOC races for the team (and that doesn't count the WOC races Pavlina ran before she was running for the US).
I looked at the ages based on a list of WOC team members that I found at the Orienteering USA (or is it USA Orienteering?) web page.
