We are delighted that British Orienteering has just announced that two members of SBOC, Ben Mitchell and Megan Carter-Davies, have been selected to represent Great Britain in 2021. A further member of the GB squad is Kristian Jones who started his Orienteering career in Swansea and is still a member of the club, whilst living in Scotland.
They will be aiming for the 2021 World Championships in Czech Republic, which now has Sprint and Mixed Sprint Relay events added to the programme (given the cancellation of the Sprint only WOC in the 2020). This takes place in July and is preceded by the Sprint European Championships being held in Switzerland in May.
As a small club we are delighted to have 3 members in the squad and it is a credit to their dedication to trainng and focus that they have been able to achieve such a great recognition.
