Lanita and Asha are off to JWOC! The Australian team to contest the Junior World Orienteering Championships was announced, and the dynamic duo are part of the 12-member squad. JWOC will be held from July 9-16, in the Engadine region of Switzerland.
It will be Lanita’s final JWOC and she has been training hard, proving her fitness and skill by winning the Australian UltraLong in South Australia, by 4 minutes. Asha joins her sister for the second time, coming off some excellent results in the Australian Easter 3-Day carnival.
Before flying off to Europe, both girls will compete in New Zealand next month, in the Aus-NZ Test match, representing the Australian Bushrangers.
Our next MelbushO on Sunday June 19 at Plenty Gorge Park, will be a major fundraiser to support our Juniors. We’ll be selling jams and relishes, and holding a raffle with a fantastic prize of a $120 voucher from Rebel Sport. The next issue of Punchline will have a special feature on all our up and coming junior orienteers.
Congrats Asha and Lani, we wish you every success!
