Highest-ever placement by a North American in world competition!
This year, a North American finally made it to the podium in a world orienteering event. Emily Kemp, from Ottawa, Ontario placed 3rd at the Junior World Orienteering Championship (JWOC)--the highest placed individual from this continent ever. Congratulations to Emily!
Some of COC's best orienteers have been training at excellent events north of the border for some time now, and this coming year we will increase the level of connection for top youth orienteers. See the full story about Emily's achievement and how it happened at her blog on the Canadian site.
