Scotland well represented in the GB teams this summer

A large number of Scottish (and Scotland-based) athletes have been selected for various international competitions this summer, and with the World Championships team yet to be selected, there are likely to be more. This is a testament to the excellent orienteering and coaching available to athletes in Scotland.

The World University Orienteering Championships will take place in Bulgaria in August, with a team heavily dominated by Edinburgh University athletes – Rachel Brown EUOC, Fiona Bunn EUOC, Eilidh Campbell EUOC, Isobel Howard EUOC, Niamh Hunter EUOC, Jim Bailey EUOC, David Bunn EUOC, Euan Tryner EUOC – and also several other alumni and native Scots – Peter Molloy FVO, Freddie Carcas INT, and Eddie Narbett INT.

More Selection Success for Scottish Juniors

Following the British Championships, Northern Championships and the JK, Scottish Juniors across a range of ages have been selected for international competition and a range of training camps. The performance of all the Scottish juniors at these events was fantastic with some very tough competition from juniors from the rest of the UK and Europe.  It was great to see the breadth of Scottish junior talent as well as the fun and friendship they gain from the sport.
