British Orienteering is keen to offer international experience to some of our older junior athletes, particularly as they have missed out on the opportunity to gain such experience at the Junior World Championships in either 2020 or 2021, and as a result a number of M/W20 athletes originally named to the 2021 JWOC team are included in this team.  Congratulations to them and to all athletes selected.
