Great Britain Junior Orienteering Teams have been announced for Junior World Championships and European Youth Orienteering Championships.

EckO very proudly announce that Iris Macmillan (W18) has excelled herself and after a fantastic, consistent set of orienteering results this season, she has been selected as part of the Great Britain Junior Orienteering Team.

Iris will go to the 2022 Junior World Orienteering Championships, which are being held in Aguiar De Beira, Portugal, 9th - 17th July 2022 and the 2022 European Youth Orienteering Championships, which are being held in Salgótarján, Hungary, 1st – 4th July, 2022.

Looks like July is going to be very busy but probably a welcome change from studying for Highers.

Performance Director, Bernie Dietzig, said of the selections, “In order to get themselves in contention for selection, the athletes needed to demonstrate strong resilience and consistency over a number of selection races. Huge congratulations to everyone selected for the championships this summer!"
