PRESS RELEASE: WOC 2019 turned out a huge success in all aspects, even economically. The organisers are NOK 1,5 million on the plus side, money that will go back to the organising clubs from Østfold. The ambition to create the best WOC ever seems to have been achieved.
WOC 2019 will have close to the estimated 10.000 spectator race starters during the WOC week in Østfold, and Saturday we paid the staff at the start a visit in the pouring rain.
Olav Lundanes from Norway took his second gold medal during WOC 2019 when he won the middle-distance. Sweden’s Gustav Bergman had to settle for silver after being overtaken on the last lap.
Second gold medal for Alexandersson and Lundanes
