Hello, and we're again here to share with you results of JWOC selection races to Russian team!
There were two parts of selections: first part included two individual sprint races in Moscow - the capital of Russia; and second part took place in Russian city Vladimir - there are big open hills and deep rugged green ravines there.
Nice combination for a difficult orienteering, agree? Second part consisted of three forest races - two middle distances and one long distance.
