Controller and Planner join WOC 2022 team
Rob Hickling (from Badenoch and Strathspey Orienteering Club) has joined the Sprint World Orienteering Championships 2022 team as Assistant National Controller.
Rob was an Assistant Controller at WOC 2015 and a recent move to Edinburgh puts him in an excellent location for checking progress with mapping, course planning and other essential technical and organisational aspects of the event.
Rob has been involved as an IOF Controller for many of the World Ranking Events held in Scotland and regularly represents Scotland in the Home Internationals.
Also, Ross McLennan (Forth Valley Orienteers) has been announced as the third planner for the World Orienteering Championships 2022, joining Graeme Ackland and Jon Cross.
In addition to recent experience planning the Scottish Sprint Championships, Ross was planner for the hugely successful Race the Castles event in Stirling in 2014. This course was runner-up in the World of O’s “course of the year” and best “Sprint Course of the year”.
