- In the hills towards the sixth control I realised I’m going to win, Swedish last lap runner Gustav Bergman said after he’d secured gold for Sweden in a thrilling men’s relay at WOC 2019’s last day.

Sweden’s Karolin Ohlsson outsprinted Swiss Julia Jakob on the golf course towards the last control. This means that Sweden will take all the women’s gold medals home from WOC 2019.

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.

-You’re disqualified, missed punch control 62, the controller told eight-year-old Odin as he crossed the finish line for the last spectator race at WOC 2019. In 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.

- I can’t belive it! Unbelievable! Just like Holmenkollen! Exceeding all expectations! Those were some of the feedbacks from the board of the Norwegian Confederation of Sports (NIF) paid a visit to WOC 2019 at Arena Mørk.

They’ve all led the Orienteering Union of Østfold, today they followed the midlle-distance finals at Mørk.

Second gold medal for Alexandersson and Lundanes

Tove Alexandersson (26) dived over the finish line and went down totally exhausted for two or three minutes after WOC gold number two on Friday.

WOC will hand out 2000 flags at Arena Mørk, and we’re hoping the spectators use them and cheer the competitors on.
