Following some great results at recent events, Rachel Brown (EUOC/ESOC) has been selected for the Great Britain team for both the 2023 Junior World Orienteering Championships and the 2023 Junior European Cup.
JWOC will take place in Baia Mare, Romania, 1 - 9 July 2023. This competition involves a sprint, mixed sprint relay, middle, long and forest relay. The aim is to select athletes who are performance-based and have demonstrated that they can deliver top 20 results at JWOC, either immediately or in future years.
JEC will be in Virton, Belgium, 26 - 28 August, with a forest middle, long and relay. In order to select the strongest team, priority was given to those athletes who are on a strong trajectory for international success.
The athletes selected will run all races in both competitions. For the full team lists, see this news item on the British Orienteering website, which also includes a link to more information about selection policies.
Congratulations to Rachel, and good luck.
