A number of ShUOC's athletes featured in the first announcement of selections to represent Great Britain this year. Most importantly three athletes have been selected for the World Students Orienteering Championships in Alicante, Spain this July. There is talk of more joining them in support.
Anwen Darlington, Kris Jones and Dave Schorah will all wear the red, white and blue in the Spanish sunshine. I'm sure good hydration before and during the races will be key. Perhaps they could give Joe Taunton a ring and ask for some gin tips.
Dave Schorah (pictured below in a rather fetching get up) has also been selected for the European Championships after a solid set of selection races. John Rocke has also been selected (on a much less solid set) after suffering will illness and injury. Graham Gristwood has the "X-factor" and former ShUOC member Chris Smithard makes the team too. The European Champs take place in Sweden in may. SHUOC!
