Thanks for posting this, really looking forward to watching it.

Hmm, I wonder how many other jurisdictions have 450, give or take?
With Austria really getting good, wonder who's next? Germany still has always struck me as a sleeping giant (as well as a certain other large country...)

Listened to/watched the whole interview and it was definitely interesting and worth watching.
Some of her comments actually apply to North American orienteers too - particularly the need for more running skills in the forest, something they don´t have much of in the Netherlands (not true for North America though - so what´s your excuse ;-) )

Yes thanks for sharing. I'll watch it some time.when I have full internet access.

re: paying for WOC. it's a good thing they don't have to cross an ocean to get to WOC every year ;)

450 for the Netherlands is about 1 orienteer for every 93 square km. At that density, that's about 300 orienteers for Massachusetts, 4500 for all of California.
