There have been a couple of changes since that announcement. Michael Svoboda withdrew due to an injury. Therefore, the following athletes will be racing:

Sprint relay: Emma Waddington, Adam Woods, Michael Kondro, Pia Blake (as listed above)
Men's middle: Adam Woods, Robbie Graham, Tomas Graham
Men's sprint: Addam Woods, Michael Kondro, Robbie Graham, Tomas Graham

The other events remain the same as what was posted in the Orienteering Canada link above.

Good luck everyone! I love summer orienteering championship season! So fun to follow along with everyone's races.

Live GPS for all competitors in each race as well!

I am eager to check maps and see if there is still distinct vegetation boundaries on bare rock, like in old maps. Around here vegetation on vegetation free bare rock used to vary so much sometimes vegetation boundary was needed :)

I’m eager to see the awesome athleticism on display from the worlds best student orienteers

great run Emma

What a great start to the relay from Emma handing off to Adam in 5th for Canada.

Adam seems to be losing a little bit of time because it's such a runner's course but I'm really really curious to see what Michael Kondro can pull out of the bag today with his track background!

Nice job Emma, Adam, Michael and Pia! That would have been exciting to be there and see Emma come in in 5th!
Jul 17, 2018 6:56 PM # 
Nice press release here. And of course, go Carleton Ravens!

Woot! #gomacgo

Gotta love the publicity machine that is university sports. Ontario really needs an O-Cup for uni orienteering. I'd suggest sprint and sprint relay as a starting point.
Jul 17, 2018 8:38 PM # 
USports also sent out this press release
Jul 17, 2018 9:36 PM # 
Totally agree with the need for an O-Cup for Ontario universities. They were doing it 50 years ago but sadly the idea did not last.
The need is even more pressing in Florida where we graduate hundreds of high school orienteers in to the colleges and universities of the state only to rarely see them again.

Emma not running the middle?? Hope she's ok.
Jul 18, 2018 2:45 AM # 
Given that JWOC just ended and there are no rest days at WUOC, Emma decided to skip the middle to focus on sprint and long (and to rest a sore leg).

I was just worried how bad bare rock mapping will be, because that region is quite infamous for imaginary bare rock. Mmost of the bare rock of old seems to be gone so I guess it was not that overly confusing now for our guests.

There did seem to be something wrong with a huge number of people's compasses on that leg 6-7 on the women's course.
Jul 18, 2018 1:28 PM # 
They obviously need to get themselves a str8 compass each.

@Ralph are you gettting commission? They do look nice but are they worth the 2-3x higher price compared to a Moscow?
Jul 19, 2018 8:19 AM # 
Yay, Emma!
Jul 19, 2018 8:59 AM # 
Emma 8th place!!!
Jul 19, 2018 12:15 PM # 
Congratulations (again), Emma!!!
Jul 19, 2018 12:19 PM # 
@Arnold no commission. I guess you have to work out how much the time you save, by running less distance or more quickly running in the correct direction, is worth for you. Cyclists spend money on lighter bikes, track athletes spend money on lighter shoes, why shouldn't orienteers spend money on a better compass?

Way to go, Emma!!
Jul 19, 2018 12:41 PM # 
Congratulations Emma! Great race!

Also worth noting excellent results from Michael Laraia (48th) and Julia Doubson (50th) from Team USA. Well done!
Jul 19, 2018 1:12 PM # 
And Tim.
Jul 19, 2018 1:20 PM # 
Uncle JiM:
And Henry.
Jul 19, 2018 1:29 PM # 
Yeah, impressive to see Oceania take two podium spots. Well done to Tim and Henry!
Jul 19, 2018 1:32 PM # 
I wonder what happened to @Bashman
Jul 19, 2018 2:37 PM # 
Go LOST Henry
Jul 19, 2018 5:27 PM # 
Great to watch the gps tracking and see where everyone went...nicely done USA!
Jul 19, 2018 6:03 PM # 
4 Commonwealth athletes in the top 9 in the men!
Jul 19, 2018 6:18 PM # 
Jagge>>Twitter says two punches didn't register, but he apparently has been reinstated to 5th.
Jul 19, 2018 6:38 PM # 
Right, I should have guessed since they used the EmiTag punch-free punching system.

Good to see the Norwegian athlete on the podium with Tim and Henry. Will be a big boost for the development of orienteering in the backwaters of Europe and Scandinavia ;-)

Terje Mathisen:
@slow-twitch: This only happened because the norwegian guy is a second-generation orienteer, otherwise it would have been impossible to compete with Tim & the other fast guys from countries with a real orienteering heritage.

(His father is the same age as my brother, born 1959, we all attended NTH at the same time.)
Jul 20, 2018 7:10 AM # 
Not sure about Tim, but I was shadowing Henry when he was 7 or 8 and he does have some orienteering background in his heritage, but he hides it well :-)
Jul 20, 2018 8:42 AM # 
Nobody could shadow Tim they couldn't keep up.

Relay results:

Emma Waddington: 8th on the first leg running with a mixed CAN/German team. Cool to see Tom and Rob Graham racing together on CAN, with Adam Woods running anchor.
