World Cup in China

The final round of the 2019 Orienteering World Cup is being held this weekend in Guangdong, China and Australia is sending a top quality, full size team! Queenslanders, Krystal Neumann and Anna Sheldon are part of the 12 person Australian team competing in the middle, sprint relay and individual sprint races from Saturday to Tuesday. Some unusual terrain is being promised, with the sprint relay being held in an open-air film studio complex filled with replica townships and the individual sprint being held in a maze-like ancient village.  

Results hot off the press for the Middle Distance have Aston Key as the best-placed Australian in the Men, with a place inside the top 50, with Krystal Neumann the best-placed Women, just outside the top 50. Results for the Middle are here. The exciting Sprint event is today with Australia entering 3 teams. You can watch the action at the IOF Live Centre.
