2014 WOC team announced

After the selection races in Italy, the selection committee made their final decision on which races athletes will run at the World Orienteering Championships (WOC):

Men Long: Robbie Anderson
Men Middle: Eric Kemp
Men Sprint:  Robbie Anderson, Will Critchley, Damian Konotopetz
Men Relay: Robbie Anderson, Will Critchley, Eric Kemp

Note: Based on results from the selection race, Robbie was selected to run the middle and Eric was selected to run the long, but by mutual agreement between the two athletes and approval by the selection committee, Robbie and Eric switched races.

Women Long: Emily Kemp, Louise Oram
Women Middle: Emily Kemp, Louise Oram
Women’s Relay: Emily Kemp, Louise Oram, Tori Owen
Women’s Sprint: Tori Owen

The Selection Committee has used its discretion to select the following athletes to the Sprint Relay:

Sprint Relay: Will Critchley, Damian Konotopetz, Louise Oram, Tori Owen

* Note that the selection committee did not list Emily and Louise as running Individual Sprint as neither expressed interest in their letters of interest.  If, however, either athlete(s) changes her mind, the selection committee would not object to her doing so.

Per the selection criteria, any appeals must be submitted to by 10:15am PST on July 1.

You can follow our athletes during WOC on the Live Centre, available through the WOC website. You can also follow the action on the team canada blog, on Facebook and on Twitter.

Congratulations to those athletes selected.
