Lanita and Asha Steer were selected as part of the Australian team for the World University Orienteering Champs in Finland. It was a big program, with a Sprint, Sprint Relay, Middle, Long, and Relay. This was a one-off for Lanita, as she is no longer eligible. She made the most of it with a red-hot run in the Middle Distance, finishing 31st in a field of 90 of the world’s fastest female orienteers! Lanita worked her way up from 50th over the first few legs, improving her position with every leg.
Both girls have had a great time in Europe, but are happy to be back home, and gearing up for the Aus Champs in SA.
