British Orienteering’s Chair of Selection Panel Craig Anthony, said:  "We are pleased to announce a strong team. After some really strong performances at WOC in 2017, it’s clear that the squad have been training hard over the winter and I am confident this team will challenge for medals in Switzerland. It is great to see Alexander Chepelin making the transition from the Talent Squad to selection at senior level."
