World Games Team

I missed the announcement of this, a big congratulation to those selected, I'm sure it will be an amazing experience!

From Clem Larsen on Maptalk..."But for those who missed it, the NZ team that'll run down AUS and the rest is:

Darren Ashmore
Ross Morrison
Lizze Ingham
Tania Robinson

150-160 hours of TV coverage, 24-34 hours of semi-finals and finals in ALL sports sent out in global packages, satelite transmission uploaded to a global pool, and coverage by global print media. It's a pretty big event for orienteering and the IOF know it.

I will try and talk with a couple of these people in the next few weeks to suss out how they are feeling about the event and what they are doing to prepare.
