Update from the Ski-Orienteering World Champs

Robbie Anderson of Ottawa has had the top result for a North American male in both the sprint and middle distance at the Ski-Orienteering World Championships happening this week in Sweden. He has been 45th in both races. Nick Duca of Kitchener placed 63rd in the sprint and 68th in the middle. Nick is pleased with his results considering that he broke a rib recently back home in Ontario. Check out the national team blog for the latest update from Nick and Robbie and a few of their photos. You can see from the photos that they’ve had some tricky weather to contend with. Next up for Robbie and Nick is the long distance. Also, congratulations to the USA’s Alison Crocker’s for her great results. Alison was 18th in both the sprint and middle.
