The calculation of WOC divisions has been completed by the IOF Foot Orienteering Commission. The calculations are based upon the updated Special Rules for WOC and will be used to determine starting allocations in the long and middle distance competitions at WOC 2016 in Strömstad, Sweden.
Great Britain had a fantastic World Orienteering Championships on home ground and advance from division 2 to division 1 in both the women’s and men’s scoring. Great Britain replaces Latvia among the women and Russia among the men.
Spain will also advance from division 3 to division 2 in both women’s and men’s scoring. Among the women they will be joined in division 2 by Hungary, replacing Italy and Japan who fall to division 3. Among the women New Zealand joins Spain in division 2, while Australia and Irland drop to division 3.
Full scoring tables for both Men and Women are available from the IOF website article.
