Østfold Energi has signed a deal to become the main sponsor on a national level for WOC 2019. This obviously is music to the ears of WOC Director Per Bergerud.

In the fourth edition of WOC2019's GPS Analysis Column World of O's Jan Kocbach takes a look at the GPS-tracking from the 2018 pre WOC and World Cup long distance - a race dominated by the Swedish runners, with Gustav Bergman and Tove Alexandersson on top. How did Bergman and Alexandersson attack the Norwegian forest? Another must-read for those interested in WOC 2019 terrain.

Straight on from WOC to inspecting next year’s terrain along with representatives from national broadcaster NRK and IOF.

Big margin in favour of the Swedes among the women – a thriller all the way to the end for the men.

Tove Alexandersson with performance that outclassed the rest – William Lind victorious after a highly dramatic sprint.

The Swedes Johan Runesson and Albin Ridefelt claimed the top two spots in the prologue this morning, and will start first in the pursuit on Saturday afternoon in Aremark, Østfold. Tove Alexandersson has good margin before the pursuit in the women’s class.

Tove Alexandersson and Gustav Bergman were the best during World Cup orienteering at Skolleborg.

NRK will air 5,5 hours of live orienteering from the pre-WOC/World Cup in Halden.

Guro (25), Henrik Julian (12) and Stein (83) are looking forward to take part as volunteers during WOC 2019 next summer.

Today it was officially announced that Eidsberg Sparebank is WOC 2019's first Golden Sponsor. By that the organisers are one step closer to create a once in a lifetime experience. Østfold has never hosted any World Championships of any kind before, but that'll change with next year's WOC from 12th to 17th of August.
